The adult education budget funds learners aged 19 and over. It is not allocated by age group or qualification type and through freedoms and flexibilities providers can earn their allocation in line with the funding rules we set each year.

Information on volumes of full level 2 and 3 qualifications can be found in table 3 of the further education and skills: November 2017 main table which is attached and also available at: https://www.gov.uk/government/statistics/further-education-and-skills-november-2017. Please note that this includes Offenders Learning and Skills Service provision and shows all level 2 and 3 qualifications not just first full level 2 and 3 qualifications.
