Funding increases for 19+ learners on EAL Diplomas
Business-Improvement Techniques, Engineering and Manufacturing Diplomas enjoy increased funding
The Skills Funding Agency has released August funding rates for the 2013/14 academic year. The new rates are great news for Centres delivering EAL’s Engineering and Manufacturing or Business-Improvement Techniques (B-IT) Diplomas, as funding for several qualifications has increased significantly.
EAL’s Head of Business Innovation, Elizabeth Bonfield, said: “This is great news for EAL Centres in these difficult economic times. Learning providers can now benefit from the new funding rates by choosing the right EAL Diplomas, whilst offering their learners the high quality EAL qualifications that will give them the skills needed by industy.”
EAL Centres can add these qualifications to their Centre remit via Smarter Touch to make the most of these increased rates in this funding year.

As an example of the scale of the increases we can confirm that the EAL Level 3 NVQ Diploma in B-IT (501/0856/6) has a new funding rate of £5,421, which is an impressive increase of £1,497 on last year.
