Hi All – thought i would try here first as help desk is not much use currently
I have an apprentice who started pre-May 1st 2017 on a framework. due to a job role change, the employer has asked for a transfer to a different framework (the original framework does not fit the new role)
My question is, as the new apprenticeship start date will be after the first of May, would i need to apply the new rules in regards to starts for non-levy payers – i.e co-investment payments, commitment statements, contract of service etc or does the original framework start date mean the pre-May 1st rules apply?
I know there is a summary of action section in the performance management rules version 3 but not sure if that applies as the original start comes under the previous rules
Transfers are deemed to be new starts so would fall under the new funding model – unless someone knows something I don’t! I hope someone has another robust view as it isn’t something that goes down well with employers, not all of them see the levy and co-investment as a positive!
We had a similar query last week. We were advised by our ESFA advisor that this would fall under the new funding rules for learners transferring after 1st May 2017 – i.e you would need to collect the co-investment payments.
