EXPLANATORY NOTE

(This note is not part of the Regulations)


These Regulations amend the Education (Mandatory Awards) Regulations 2002.

Paragraph 12(1)(b) of Schedule 2 to the Regulations has been amended to provide that child tax credit will be disregarded from a dependant's income in relation to his maintenance.

Paragraph 15(1)(b) and 15(3) of Schedule 2 to the Regulations have replaced references to city colleges with references to Academies as a result of amendments made to section 482 of the Education Act 1996 (c. 56) by section 65 of the Education Act 2002 (c. 32).

Paragraph 1(1)(o) of Schedule 3 has been amended to provide that child tax credit and working tax credit will be disregarded from a student's income for the purposes of the award of a maintenance grant.

The amendments to paragraph 2(1) of Schedule 3 correct drafting errors.
