That the fee for Community Learning be
increased from £4.50 (last updated 2020/21) per hour to
£4.60 per hour (2021/22).

Fee levels are reviewed annually in line with
the Council’s Fees and Charges Strategy.
All the funding received for the Adult Learning and Skills Service is allocated by central Government via the Education and Skills Funding Agency (ESFA) to fund and support learning for adults aged 19+. All costs associated with the delivery of learning (including all staffing costs) are covered by the ring fenced external budgets.
The Service offers a small amount of provision through the Community Learning funding to enable learners to join learning activities for their own enjoyment and to learn or improve skills. This offer is costed at £4.60 per hour (2021/22) for full fee paying learner and £1.90 (2021/22) for fee remitted learner - this will be applied through the same funding entitlement and fee remission rules as Accredited Learning.
