    Hi
    We have a situation that a learner started an apprenticeship program but only was on program for 38 days and then the program was withdrawn due to the employer. The employer now wants to resume the program. As the original 42 days had not passed in the initial qualifying period do we still reduce the time on program ? Where in PSM or funding rules can the information be found please or can anyone advise ?
    Thanks in Advance

    Hi,
    If they withdrew before the qualifying period (40 days) they were not a funded start so it would not be recorded as a restart but a new start.

    HI Martin

    Many thanks I thought this was the case but better check.

    The qualifying period for apprenticeships is 42 days (not 40); it is only lower for
    apprenticeships when a break in learning occurs. If the apprentice takes a break in
    learning and then returns to learning, the ESFA will apply the qualifying period to the new
    programme aim before any monthly payments are calculated. This also applies
    when the apprentice restarts for any other reason.

    Hi,
    It was a typo, but you are correct it is 42 days.
