How to complete an OfS data return
This training on funding data returns is for providers that:
- have registered (or have applied to be registered) with the OfS in the Approved (fee cap) category
- do not have higher education provision recognised for OfS funding purposes in 2018-19
- will offer higher education provision recognised for OfS funding purposes in 2019-20
- are not a further education college, sixth form college or academy.
This one-day training seminar, run by the OfS, will explain how to complete a data return in December 2018 that will be used to calculate funding for 2019-20, for providers whose application to register is successful. You may not yet know the outcome of your registration application and invitation or attendance at this event does not affect the outcome. Only those providers successfully registered in the Approved (fee cap) category will need to complete the data survey.
We welcome up to two delegates per provider. Places will be assigned on a first come, first served basis.
There is no charge for attending.Find out more and register
