Description: To Introduce loans for those aged 24 or over, undertaking provision at Level 3 and above from 2013/2014. The project will allow savings to be realised through the conversion of grant to loan funding while still allowing access to advanced and higher level provision . Introduction of loans should put greater power into the hands of learners, creating a more responsive system. System should be simple and non-bureaucratic , representing good value for money and making use of HE infrastructure to minimise disruption and facilitate progression.
DCA (RAG): Amber/Red
DCA text: The Amber/Red rating reflected the fact that there were initially concerns that the loans payments system would not be launched on time and there were aspects of the system that had defects. Whilst overall takeup of loans was strong at the time generally there were areas where take-up was very low, one being apprenticeships. Robust plans were put in place and contingencies used to ensure successful launch and rectify defects. It was also decided that apprenticeships be removed from loans. Due to both the successful removal of apprenticeships and launch the programme officially closed on the 24th October 2013.
