    Could someone help me understand which year an apprentices standards achievement will count in based on the various scenarios. The MIS we use seems to be throwing up contradictory information when I look at the source data and I cant work out satisfactorily what puts the result in any given year.

    Is it meant to be the year the learner either withdraws (if they don’t go through EPA) or the year they pass or fail EPA (if they get to the end of it and the professional discussion).

    Hi Ian,
    17 The overall QAR, pass rate and retention rate calculations use the hybrid end
    year of the learning aim. The hybrid end year is the latter of the:
    a achievement year (for apprenticeship standards on funding model 36 only)
    b planned end year of the learning aim
    c actual end year of the learning aim
    d reporting year.

    You should also note the following:
    12 We have changed the apprenticeship rules to account for the 2019 to 2020 ILR
    changes for apprenticeship standards. These are the changes to when you record the
    ‘Learning planned end date’, the ‘Actual end date’ and the ‘Achievement date’ fields in
    the ILR for apprenticeship standards only. Because of these ILR changes, we are
    reviewing how we calculate QARs for apprenticeship standards for 2020 to 2021.
    However, they will be unchanged for 2019 to 2020.

    Hi Martin,

    Thanks for the speedy reply. So what does that actually mean in practice. Could you help me understand with the following examples:

    If a learner had a planned end year of 19-20, an actual end year (learning not EPA) of 19-20, achievement year of 19-20 but reported in R13 or R14 (September or October of 20-21)

    If a learner had a planned end year of 19-20, an actual end year (learning not EPA) of 19-20, achievement year of 19-20, reported in R12 (July of 19-20)

    If a learner had a planned end year of 19-20, an actual end year (learning not EPA) of 19-20, achievement year of 20-21, reported in R04 of 20-21

    If a learner had a planned end year of 19-20, an actual end year (learning not EPA) of 19-20, go into EPA, R14 (19-20) closes and they withdraw before the final professional discussion so dont pass or fail and hence no achievement date in the ILR

    Hi,
    1. If a learner had a planned end year of 19-20, an actual end year (learning not EPA) of 19-20, achievement year of 19-20 but reported in R13 or R14 (September or October of 20-21)

    You would not report achievement in R13/R14 as the date is after 31/07/2020 and should be reported in the 20/21 ILR, this would be 20/21 hybrid end year

    2. If a learner had a planned end year of 19-20, an actual end year (learning not EPA) of 19-20, achievement year of 19-20, reported in R12 (July of 19-20)

    19/20 hybrid end year

    3. If a learner had a planned end year of 19-20, an actual end year (learning not EPA) of 19-20, achievement year of 20-21, reported in R04 of 20-21

    20/21 hybrid end year

    4. If a learner had a planned end year of 19-20, an actual end year (learning not EPA) of 19-20, go into EPA, R14 (19-20) closes and they withdraw before the final professional discussion so dont pass or fail and hence no achievement date in the ILR

    If they withdrew during the EPA would still be completion but failed, as you require payment for EPAO.
    19/20 hybrid end year

    Hiya

    Martin, I *think* you’ve misread 1. I *think* Ian means Acheivement date before 1 Aug but not reported until R13/R14, which would make the HEY 19/20.

    Agree 1. should be 19/20, my mistake

    Hi again,

    So I can report an achievement date that falls in 19-20 in R13 or R14, however if the same learners achievement date falls in 20-21 I should report it in the 20-21 years return?

    So for example I would report an achievement date of 29th Sept 2020 in R02 and it would be a 20-21 achievement (even though expected end was 19-20)?

    And to clarify scenario number 4 for me if EPA had been paid for but the date they withdrew from it was prior to August 1st 2020 then it would be 19-20 year but if they withdrew August 2nd 2020 it would be a 20-21 hybrid year achievement failure?

    A quick question about the learning actual date. Should it always be the date they enter gateway? For example if a learner finishes their planned classroom learning and OTJT on the expected end date but still needs a bit more exam prep before going into gateway should the learner actual end date reflect this and be the date they enter gateway?

    Yes
    Yes as the hybrid end year is the latter of
    Yes if after the planned end date
    When training has ended prior to the EPA
