Adding the funding calculation to the claim details

We added how we calculate the claim amount to the claim details to help users understand how much money they will receive.

Calculating the funding

The amount of funding schools will receive depends on:

  • the location of the school
  • how many hours the mentor has spent training

For each mentor who completes the full 20 hours of training, the funding available is up to:

  • £876 (£43.80 per hour) — for schools outside London (the rest of England)
  • £902 (£45.10 per hour) — for schools in the fringe region (the area between outer London and the rest of England)
  • £965 (£48.25 per hour) — for schools in outer London
  • £1,072 (£53.60 per hour) — for schools in inner London

We calculate the funding on a per-hour basis. For example, if a mentor in a school outside London completed 10 hours of training, the school can claim £438. We calculate this amount at £43.80 (per hour) x 10 (hours of training).

How it works

When we onboard a school to the service, we use the school’s address to allocate a funding region. We use this region in the fee calculation.

We show the fee calculation to users on the following pages:

  • claim details
  • check your answers
  • declaration

The grant funding section of the three pages includes:

  • total hours claimed
  • hourly rate - for example £45.10
  • claim amount
