The person concerned made an application for the Back to Education Allowance(B.T.E) which was refused based on the information provided. A request for a review by the person concerned was received, and the application was referred to an independent Case Officer. The outcome of the review found there were no grounds to change the recommendation.

Intreo Centre staff have sought to advise the customer and remain available to assist him.

I trust this clarifies the matter for the Deputy.
