Does anyone yet know what immigration status Ukrainian nationals will receive form either of the Family or sponsored route? And if so if it is one of the categories that are exempt from the AEB three year residency rule.
I have searched the gov.uk site but as yet cannot find a definitive answer.
No one has replied to this post.
The following was part of the AOC funding and finance briefing last week.
Three points to note:

Thank you for the swift response. I don't suppose the AOC gave any indication of when the revised funding rules will be published and/or if it will include changes to both the 16-19 funding rules and the AEB ones?

I see that the AEB rules have been updated today.
Update from GOV.UK for:
Page summary:Sets out the rules that apply to ESFA funded AEB provision for the 2021 to 2022 funding year.
Change made:We’ve updated the funding rules to confirm that all Ukrainian adults and their family members supported through the Ukraine Family Scheme and Ukraine Sponsorship Scheme are immediately eligible for FE 19+ funding and are exempt from the 3-year residency requirement as per the current AEB funding rules.

Just to clarify - if a Ukranian refugee then finds employment would they be co-funded (dependant on wage ofcourse)?
