We are delighted to confirm that following a successful appeal to the SFA, on behalf of our centres, the SFA have agreed to continue funding the Level 2 Certificate for Proficiency in Fish and Shellfish Industry Skills until 31st March 2015.
This means that funding will continue for learners aged 19+, so providers can continue to use their adult skills budget to fund this qualification as standalone.

We want to make all our centres fully aware of an all-important Skills Funding Agency (SFA) announcement which came out recently; this relates to 19+ funding for qualifications OUTSIDE of the apprenticeship framework.
This means qualifications which sit within apprenticeship frameworks are not affected by this announcement.
