Question to the Department for Education:

To ask the Secretary of State for Education, what the average programme funding per student is for 16 to 19 year olds studying a (a) T-level and (b) non-T-level study programme on a full-time basis in the 2020-21 academic year.

The base funding rate for a full time student (band 5) on a non T level study programme is £4,188 in the current academic year.

For this academic year, the first three T levels are funded in the medium T level band (band 7), which attracts a base funding rate of £5,061 per student, per year. T level students attract a higher funding rate as T levels include more teaching hours. In addition, industry placements are a compulsory element of T levels, which we are funding at £275 per student, for each of the two years of the T level.

The overall average funding per student will be determined by the national 16-19 funding formula and will reflect the characteristics of the students, courses, and institutions.
