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. We have been informed some learners and parents have received a letter from ESFA asking for personal learner bank details in relation to the 16 to 19 Bursary Fund.
The Education and Skills Funding Agency will NEVER ask for personal bank account details. This is a fraudulent letter – please do not respond.
Where possible, please share this message with other parents and/or students to ensure the message is received by everyone.
