Bursary Fraud Risk

Fake letters being sent to learners and parents - Please read and keep alert!

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 ESFA will never ask for personal bank account details. This is a fraudulent letter – please do not respond.

If you are an Avant Skills Academy learner or parent of a learner and receive one of these letters, please let us know.

Stay safe!
