How does SFC develop student support policies?

Work on Student Support policies and allocation models is done in consultation with colleges. SFC uses three formal areas to inform them on their policy development:

  • The FE Student Support Advisory Group that advises us on all of its Student Support funds, including education maintenance allowances. The group's members include college senior management, Student Support staff as well as others from Colleges Scotland and the National Union of Students.
  • The bursary consultation email network that connects Student Support staff at colleges. SFC also uses this network to identify possible areas for review and views on possible proposals.
  • Consultations we issue to the public to consult on Student Support matters.
