Keeping Leighton College COVID-Secure: Education and Skills Funding Agency 16 to 19 tuition fund for the 2020 to 2021 academic year

ERC has received from the ESFA £5700 to support the Leighton College to effectively and safely support learners in class from September 2020. We have used this funding to help us cover the higher staff costs we have experienced because we have kept our students in small groups this academic year to maintain COVID-security and to decrease the risks of coronavirus transmission. We have also taken on additional room costs to enable this. The ESFA tuition fund allocation has been used to benefit all 18 learners this year who are aged 16 – 25 years old, all of whom have an Education, Health and Care Plan.
