Expenditure incurred by the Learning and Skills Council, HEFCE—the Higher Education Funding Council for England—and the Student Loans Company is not collected by my Department at the level of detail requested. We will however, work with HEFCE and the Student Loans Company to try to gain a detailed break down of the higher education expenditure and will write to the hon. Member with further relevant detail.

(1) A full-time equivalent learner is defined as the total guided learning hours divided by 450 (maximum of one FTE per learner).

(2) The funding allocated per FTE to the colleges and FE providers located in the local authority (excluding additional learning support).

(3) School sixth form learner numbers (these are predominantly full-time learners).

(4) Funding allocated per learner (including pensions funding, but excluding the block LA SEN allocation).

Note:

In FE, additional learning support was not allocated by age band and therefore it is not possible to split between 16-18 and 19+ (this is changing in 2008/09). All above figures are based on the allocations made to the schools, colleges and other providers located in that LA area. The learners recruited may not be resident in the same LA area.
