Delivered by John Atkins from acl consulting and Clare Howard from Natspec, this free interactive online session responds to requests from across the FE sector for more clarity about the high needs funding system.

The workshop will begin with an introduction to high needs funding, and go on to explain how best to work with Local Authorities on costings for Element 3 funding, place planning, and top tips on contracting and other common issues relating to high needs funding.

The session will include time for discussion and sharing of ideas amongst participants, with an aim to answer all your high needs funding questions.


This course has been commissioned from Natspec by the Education and Training Foundation on behalf of the Department for Education.

There is another accompanying training session, covering non-high needs funding, also bookable below. Attendees can attend either, or both sessions.
