Funding for all 16-19 institutions comes from the same national funding formula. The national base rate for 16-19 year olds in full time education is £4,000 per student. Weightings related to disadvantage, programme costs and area costs are added to the base rate funding, to reflect additional costs faced by different institutions.

The overall average units of funding for the 2015/16 academic year are:

Schools and Academy Sixth Forms


Sixth Form Colleges


General Further Education and Specialist Colleges
