Entitlement funding relates only to full time students aged 16-19. It is intended to fund activities that do not, in themselves, lead to qualifications – tutorial support and guidance and activities known as enrichment. In 2011/12 the funding for the entitlement was reduced substantially – from 114 guided learning hours (glh) to 30 resulting in a cut of around £500 per full time student The cut was not accompanied by any changed expectation on schools and colleges and simply represents a reduction in unit costs.
