From 2006/07 the age eligibility for FE students was raised from students aged 18 and over to 19 and over at the start of the academic year due to the extension of Education Maintenance Allowances (EMA) to include 18 year olds.  As a result, figures on applications and awards for students will be lower for 2006/07 than in prior years.

General description

Source: Student Loans Company
Conatct: HigherEducationAndStudentFinance.Stats@gov.wales

These data provide information on the number of Welsh Government Grants (WGLGs) awarded to Welsh domiciled students in further education. These were previously called Assembly Learning Grants (ALGs) prior to 2014/15


Data collection and calculation

Prior to the academic year 2006/07 data on applications for ALG by Welsh domiciled students at FE was collected from Local Authorities. From 2006/07 all data on students at Further Education institutions have been obtained from the Student Loans Company (SLC). For 2002/03 and 2003/04, for some LEAs, data from the March return may have been used; notes are given in these cases.

ALGs were introduced by the Welsh Government from the academic year 2002/03 to provide extra money for students who might otherwise experience financial difficulty when undertaking post compulsory or higher education undergraduate courses. The grant was available to full and part-time undergraduate students who started their courses in 2002/03 who were domiciled in Wales and studying at a publicly-funded college in the UK. For part-time students their course had to amount to at least 30 credits to be eligible.

The 2002/03 scheme only included students studying at Further Education Institutions or Higher Education Institutions. From 2003/04 the scheme was extended to include students at all learning centres (e.g. schools) providing ELWa or LEA facilitated courses.

From 2006/07 responsibility for the administration of applications of ALGs for students at Further education Institutions was transferred from LAs to the SLC.
