Funding, and approval of qualifications for funding, is handled by a variety of different Government organisations.

Blue Lion Training Academy (BLTA) understands how complex funding in the UK can be for education and training providers, employers and learners, made more so by the fact that Wales and Scotland have different arrangements to England.

All qualifications that the Government approves for funding are shown on the Learning Aims Reference Service (LARS), on the Education Skills Funding Agency (ESFA) Hub.

This is the portal that confirms the latest funding position for any government-funded qualification.

European Social Fund
