Has anyone come across a scenario where an apprentice has previously achieved (in 2010) the competencies of a framework, but as they were done that long ago they can’t remember anything and so the employer wants them to repeat as they have no operational competence?
The qualification they would be doing would be a different learning aim.
Would there be an argument to not reduce the price for prior learning as they have no operational competence? P59 You must reduce the content, duration and price, where the individual
has prior learning necessary to achieve occupational competence.
It is a decade ago though, so I’d be *very* clear on the skills scan that they can’t do the stuff, probably with more input from the employer than you’d usually have? If it gets picked in the sample when you’re audited (and, due to the wonders of Sod’s Law, *of course* they will be in the sample), you’ll have to have a cast iron defence of why you chose to fund it.
I think it depends on the operational area as well? If the competencies are related to the apprentice’s ability to do the job safely that seems more compelling than it being, say, business admin (no disrespect to BA, but you know what I mean)?
