1-19 Financial Registration Form Full Commissioning 2021



This is a written agreement between you (as stated in University Name or SCITT Training Provider) and Culham St Gabriel’s Trust (CSTG) in relation to the above-named trainee.

As the Commissioning Organisation, you, (ITT Provider) agree to:
1. Take responsibility for confirming that the trainee has accepted the conditional offer, subject to undertaking a SKE course, to begin a RE ITT course with yourselves from September 2021. 

2. Take responsibility for confirming that the trainee has been awarded a degree of 2:2 or above (or in the case of a pending degree, it is your responsibility to confirm the award of degree before the trainee receives a bursary payment). 

3. Take responsibility for confirming that the applicant has not obtained a degree in their chosen ITT subject in the previous five years.

4. Take responsibility for securing evidence of the applicants’ eligibility to receive DfE funding, i.e., proof of home status for the purpose of drawing down student finance. 

5. Observe the requirements stated in paragraphs 69-78 of the SKE Funding Manual 2020, including the Monitoring, Analysis and Assurance of SKE section.

6. Agree to be nominated by CSTG to receive DfE funding of £1600 or £1440 and pay CSTG the fee of £1450 or £1305 (subject to the provider cost tiered payment model on page 13 of the SKE Funding Manual). This is to be paid within 30 days of the receipt of DfE funding and our invoice [1] [2]. 

7. Retain £150 or £135 of the SKE Programme funding in order to cover your administrative costs. (subject to the provider cost tiered payment model on page 13 of the SKE Funding Manual) 

8. Take responsibility for the trainee bursary funding element of the SKE programme as outlined in Paragraph 37 of the SKE Funding Manual (2020).

1 - Please note under paragraph 35 of the DfE Funding Manual 2020 it states that organisations who deliver SKE but are not a lead school or ITT cannot draw down funding. CSTG is such an organisation and can therefore not draw down funding.
2 - Please refer to paragraphs 52-56 of the DfE SKE Funding Manual (2020) in the event a trainee withdraws or fails to start the SKE programme. As per paragraph 55, the DfE will seek to recover a portion of the programme costs based on the amount of SKE completed prior to the trainee withdrawing from the course. In this event, if monies have been paid in full to Culham St Gabriel’s we will refund the money owed to the DfE (depending on the number of weeks completed by the participant) to you so you can return it to the DfE. In the event that monies have not been paid to Culham St Gabriel’s we will invoice for the proportion of the course that the participant has completed. For example, if a participant has completed 2 weeks of the course we would request 2/8 of the fee.

As the third party SKE provider, CSTG, we agree to:
1. Provide an 8 week/200-hour SKE Religion and Worldviews for the above-named trainee as set out in our SKE Trainee handbook.
2. Submit the funding claim to the DfE and nominate your organisation to receive funding.

3. Inform your organisation in respect of the amount of funding you should expect to receive on our behalf, pay on invoice and retain.

4. Observe the requirements stated in paragraphs 69-78 of the SKE Funding Manual 2020, including the Monitoring, Analysis and Assurance of SKE section.
5. Ensure that all funding is used solely for the delivery of the SKE programme for this trainee. 

6. Provide a detailed work record showing the bespoke pathway the trainee takes through the course ensuring transparency and appropriateness of content, length and delivery of the course. 

7. Provide the trainee with a certificate of completion and notify the ITT provider that the trainee has completed the course. 

8. Undertake quality assurance of all tutors on the SKE Programme to ensure high quality and consistent training for all trainees. 

9. Notify the ITT Provider within one week if the named trainee fails to begin or withdraws from the SKE programme.

In addition, CSTG confirm that all necessary taxes are being paid in relation to this SKE Programme. We are not VAT registered.
