Calderdale 16-19 bursary fund

From July 2011 the Educational Maintenance Allowance was discontinued and replaced with the 16-19 Bursary Fund.

A key priority of the Government is to eliminate the gap in attainment between those from poorer and more affluent backgrounds, and to ensure every young person participates in and benefits from a place in 16 -19 education and training.

This funding is designed to help support those young people who face the greatest barriers to continuing in education or training post-16.
