The most vulnerable young people will be eligible to receive a bursary of £1,200, regardless of which year of study they are in. In all other cases schools, colleges and training providers will be able to exercise their discretion to award 16-19 bursaries to young people in ways that best fit local needs and circumstances, including determining the approach that should be taken to young people in their second year of study.
