    Morning

    Have just relooked at the new ILR Spec for 2019/20, I have a query reqarding the changes to the Actual End Dates and going forward the Planned End Dates.

    Change from:
    For apprenticeship standards, for continuing learners with a Learning Actual End date on or before 31 July 2019 this date must continue to include the training and end point assessment period. For continuing learners where all learning activity has ended on or after 1 August 2019, the learning actual end date must be the end of learning only and must not include the end point assessment period.

    Change to:
    For apprenticeship standards on a programme aim, where the learner has completed all learning activities and begun the End point assessment period prior to 1st August 2019, the Learning Actual End date in the 19/20 ILR will continue to include the end point assessment (as per the 18/19 ILR specification). For apprenticeship standards on a programme aim, where the learner has not completed all learning activities by 1st August 2019, the Learning Actual End Date will be completed after all learning has taken place and does NOT include the end point assessment period.

    My query is hopefully a simple one. When is says does does NOT include the end point assessment period, does this include or exclude the Practical Period or just literally the few days where the EPA is making the completion judgement?

    My understanding is that the end dates will represent the gateway; when learning ends, and they start the EPA. The definition of the Practical Period is;

    The practical period is the training delivery period, where new knowledge, skills and behaviours are delivered by a training provider.

    Your comment makes it sound like you refer to the EPA as the practical period.

    Read paragraphs 54-58 of this document.

    The practical period is the period for which an apprentice is expected to work and receive training under an approved English apprenticeship agreement. The practical period does not include the end-point assessment.

    The end-point assessment period starts at the end of the practical period when the gateway point has been reached and ends when the EPA has been completed.

    Depending on the Standard, the EPA period may last from a few days to several months and the start of the EPA period may also be delayed and not start directley after the practical period has been completed.

    Looking back at this, if the apprentice was ready to go through gateway and EPA before the planned end date was set, would this be an issue or would it continue being recorded the way it is ie. coded up as last date in learning even if this is before the planned end date?

    For 19/20 the actual end date would be the last day in learning at the gateway point irrespective of the planned end date.
