In 2021, we are co-ordinating four campaigns on behalf of our members to:

1.   Raise the Rate of funding for sixth form students to at least £4,760 per year #RaisetheRate

2.   Protect Applied General Qualifications (e.g. BTECs) #ProtectAGQs

3.   Create the Capital by launching dedicated capital expansion and maintenance funds for sixth form providers #CreatetheCapital

4.   Reform the process for establishing new sixth form provision

Details of all four campaigns can be found in the summary document Sixth form education: priorities for 2020. 

In the run up to the comprehensive spending review at the end of this year, our two priority campaigns are #RaisetheRate (for revenue funding) and #CreatetheCapital (for capital funding). You can read our submission to the spending review here.

The pressure on the sector created by the Covid pandemic has increased the need for a fair and sufficient revenue and capital settlement. Our one page briefing note 'Sufficiency, Certainty, Flexibility', updates our funding priorities in light of Covid.

SFCA provides the secretariat for the All-Party Parliamentary Group on Sixth Form Education – an influential, cross-party group of MPs who support our campaigns and  “promote and support the interests of institutions that deliver sixth form education and to advise government on the challenges facing 16 to 18 education”.

For more information on our campaigning work, contact James Kewin, deputy chief executive, or Noni Csogor, research and policy manager.
