Education & Skills Funding Agency Saves 30% by
The Education & Skills Funding Agency has recently saved more than 30% on costs following the introduction of an easy-to-use digital application form to replace its paper forms for Care to Learn, a student support scheme that allows students to receive financial support while they study.
The scheme is one of three funds that ensure that thousands of people, including vulnerable people, have access to education and training:
- Care to Learn (5000 applications annually)
- The Bursary Fund for Vulnerable Students (4000 applications annually)
- Professional and Career Development Loans (13,000 enquiries and 9,000 applications annually)
The whole service manages around £60 million of funding, 40,000 calls from students, Education Institutions, Childcare Providers and others, 16,000 Professional and Career Development Loans enquiries and 9,500 Professional and Career Development Loans loan applications annually.
But the application process for student support schemes was far from smooth.
