    Hi, we have an apprentice who is 16-18 a care leaver and has a valid EHC plan. Are we able to claim the £1000 care leavers bursary for this apprentice, and if so how is this coded on the ILR.

    Any support would be appreciated as the guidance is predominately focused on 19-24 year olds.

    135. You record care leavers using the Learning delivery funding and monitoring type ‘EEF’ (Eligibility for enhanced apprenticeship funding) and code 4 ‘Entitlement to extended funding’.
    136. If a 19-24 year old apprentice does not want to inform the employer that they were previously in care, then please record the Learning and Delivery Monitoring (LDM) code 362 (‘Apprentice care leavers’). This will not generate the additional payment for the employer, but it will generate the funding for you and the apprentice. We will not show the employer payments in the employer’s account when this function is built. This is only for 19-24 year olds as a 16-18 year old automatically generates additional payments for employers, and withholding this may disclose that the apprentice was previously in care.
