what’s in a name?

1 December 2010

In the Schools White Paper the Government set out their intention to dissolve the Young Person’s Learning Agency (YPLA). The YPLA is currently responsible for the funding and monitoring of Academies, free schools and 16-19 education provision i.e. further education and sixth form colleges. In its place there will be a new executive agency of the DfE which will take over these functions, aptly named the Education Funding Agency (EFA).

The EFA will also distribute school funding to local authorities for schools that are not yet academies, which the Local Government Group says adds a further level of unnecessary bureaucracy. However, with more schools set to become Academies, the EFA’s role will involve funding more schools directly. This will reduce bureaucracy and enable Academies to access money that was previously top-sliced by LAs before they converted.
