SCL Bursary Policy 23-24

Bursary Policy | 23-24


It is SCL Group’s intent to be a fully inclusive provider of post-16 education and training.

Through the implementation of the ESFA’s 16-19 Bursary funding, SCL Group ensure learners receive contributions to meet costs to support them in participating in learning and training. SCL Group are ambitious and have high expectations that the impact of this funding will ensure all learners have an equal opportunity to achieve. In conjunction with the ESFA’s ‘16 to 19 Bursary Fund guide 2023 to 2024 academic year’, SCL Group strive to ensure that learners are enabled to access and engage in high quality education and training to achieve their aspirations and goals, to make progress and fulfil their potential.


The objectives of our policy are, to:

• Work within the guidance provided in current legislation and guidance from the ESFA. • Ensure early interventions by the Bursary Committee are in place to identify and monitor a learner’s individual needs so that appropriate funding may be allocated. • Raise Group wide awareness to the need to identify and support learners with potential need for monetary support.
