Important Information: increased fraud risk during coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic

Periods of instability, such as during the coronavirus pandemic, bring an increased risk of fraud. Fraudsters will actively exploit these difficult times and will target vulnerable areas for financial gain.

The Government have been informed that some learners and parents have received a letter from the Education and Skills Funding Agency (ESFA) asking for personal learner bank details in relation to the 16-19 Bursary Fund.  The ESFA never ask for personal bank account details. This is a fraudulent letter – please do not respond.
