The Third Sector National Learning Alliance (TSNLA) contributes a strong, independent, national ‗voice‘ for Third Sector providers of learning and skills to the development of national policy and programmes. This briefing paper forms part of a series commissioned by the Learning and Skills Council to set out the transition from the LSC to two new agencies, the Skills Funding Agency and the Young People‘s Learning Agency.
Third Sector Briefing Paper:
Young People’s Learning Agency December 2009
In line with the White Paper Raising Expectations: enabling the system to
deliver1, the Learning and Skills Council (LSC) will be replaced by the Young People‘s Learning Agency (YPLA) and the Skills Funding Agency (SFA) from April 2010. The transition marks a key change in the way funding is channelled into learning and skills and separates 0-19 and post-19 provision. This briefing document focuses on pre-19 provision and the YPLA, its role, its relationship with regional and local stakeholders including Third Sector National Learning Alliance (TSNLA), and the significance of that role for third sector learning providers.
