An annual report showing data by age, local authority, mode of study and residual income.
- There was a slight decrease in the number of successful applications in 2012/13 compared with 2011/12. This resulted in £8.2 million being paid out in ALGs to FE students in 2012/13, compared to the £8.3 million that was paid out in 2011/12.
- In total, 8,680 students in FE applied for an ALG in 2012/13 and of these 7,525 applications were successful; a decrease of 2 per cent and 4 per cent, respectively, when compared with 2011/12 and the first decrease seen since 2006/07.
- The breakdown of successful applications across full-time and part-time students was similar to recent years. 6,535 (87 per cent) of successful applications were from full-time students and 910 (12 per cent) of successful applications were from part-time students.
- Successful applications(1) equate to 87 per cent of applications received. This proportion has increased steadily from 79 per cent in 2008/09. The proportion of successful applications from full-time students continues to remain very high at around 97 per cent over the last five years whilst the proportion of part-time students has increased from 74 per cent in 2008/09 to 97 per cent in 2012/13.
- 5,265 (81 per cent) of successful full-time applications and 775 (85 per cent) of successful part-time applications were from students with a residual income of £6,120 or less, and were therefore awarded the full grant amounts of £1,500 and £750 respectively. These proportions have changed little since 2008/09, however the residual income bands have changed over time.
- 2,895 (44 per cent) of successful full-time applications and 175 (19 per cent) of successful part-time applications were from students aged 21 or under
(1) 80 (1 per cent) of successful applications were from students where the mode of study was ‘unknown’.
