Funding for the devolved AEB is allocated on an annual academic year basis, and individual skills providers (including some GM local authorities) are notified as early as possible prior to the start of the new academic year, in this case August 2022 to July 2023, so that they can plan their skills offer and delivery and submit their delivery & financial schedules prior to the start of the year with relevant grant agreements issued before August 2022.
The LA Grant programme also follows the same academic year and LAs are required to submit an update on planned activity prior to the start of the year to ensure local projects are not financially impacted upon.
