    I am finding it difficult to obtain a definition of classroom-based learning. We have had confirmation through the 2011/12 learner eligibility matrix that employed learners can do classroom learning, but we need a definitive definition of what this is for our delivery partners.

    I cannot locate this in the Funding Rules for 2012/13 and would appreciate some help on this.

    Hi Kathryn,

    In the funding guidance Workplace learning is defined as:

    Any learning aim predominantly delivered within the workplace and in connection with an employed Learner’s occupation or employer’s business

    Any learning in an Apprenticeship Framework

    Basic skills in literacy and numeracy delivered to an employed Learner supported by their employer.

    The assumption is if it is not workplace learning then it is class-room based.

    As any aim in an Apprenticeship Framework is workplace learning this covers even the aims delivered at college or in a class room at a training provider or employer’s premises.

    This may seem complicated but the definition only defines the type of learning and not where it is delivered.

    This should not be confused with the ILR Main delivery method which is used to record the method of delivery for learning aims.
