How can I find out if an NCFE qualification is funded?

You can find out if any NCFE qualification is funded under the Skills Funding Agency or Section 96 by using the Product Features filter on our Qualification Finder. Each funded qualification will have a small logo to tell you which funding stream(s) it's available under.

You can also see which of our qualifications are fundable under the Adult Skills Budget that come with learning resources.

The Skills Funding Agency's Learning Aims Search online system is another useful place to access funding information. This online search function shows a qualifications funding status for 16-19 learners, adult learners (19+) and which (if any) funding stream the qualification is funded against. There are lots of filters, so you can search by unit or qualification number, learning aim or qualification title, and narrow your search by individual funding stream.
