General description
Source: Student Loans Company
Contact: Post16ed.stats@gov.wales

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


Data collection and calculation
Data are extracted from the Student Loans Company's official data warehouse.

Frequency of publication
Annual

Data reference periods
2017/18 figures are based on applications received up to 31 July 2018

Users, uses and context
Data for 2013/14 and 2014/15 have been revised to exclude removed applications, which was not previously possible. Furthermore totals comprise of some English institutions, hence the sums of rows or columns may not add to the total figure given.

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.

Rounding applied
Most data are rounded to the nearest five. Due to rounding the sums of rows or columns may not add to the total figure given.

Revisions information
Data for 2013/14 and 2014/15 have been revised to exclude removed applications, which was not previously possible.
