One of our employers has just sent us a “Request to offer employment” form from their head office and the potential new staff member has the following visa:
LEAVE TO ENTER
NO DR/DEN TRAIN OR SPORTSPERSON
There doesn’t seem to be anything concrete in the Funding Guidance regarding this so I just thought I’d ask: can we enter this learner onto a Level 3 Advanced Apprenticeship in Dental Nursing with this, or will they have to provide further evidence to prove their eligibility to live/work in the UK or receive apprenticeship funding?
The learner has yet to be offered a job at the dental practice as their form states “Job offer will not be processed unless all RTW documentation is provided”.
Just wondering if anyone else here has dealt with a similar situation, and if so, what did they do?
I’ve also emailed my query across to the ESFA helpdesk just to get 100% clarification on this, but from what I’ve read on various GOV.UK links and several forums, it isn’t looking like she will be fundable via apprenticeship!
