I have candidate interested in completing a Level 5 Higher Apprenticeship in Management and Leadership. The candidate already has a HNC Level 5 in Electrical Engineering. Please can you let me know if they eligible for funding?
In the Funding Rules paragraph 111 it states; ‘if the individual already has a level 4 or above, they are only eligible for funding for a higher apprenticeship at level 5 or above’ however one of my colleagues states their is a contradiction somewhere in the guidance.
Beyond that paragraph I don’t know of any contradiction. In addition to that paragraph, 16-18s would be fully-funded on their non-prescribed HE aims (annex 1, 46.3), and 19+ would be co-funded, again on their non-prescribed HE aims (annex 1, 47.15).
