I’ve got a question around what to do with regards to do when a learner has been on programme up to the point of starting EPA Gateway and now is changing employer. They are 19+ and all co-investment payments have been collected from the first employer.
Any suggestions on how or proceed with this.
We can sign them up to the new employer for the duration of the EPA period but what TNP03 and TNP04 would we use? The new employer will unlikely want to pay anything during this period, can we just leave the TNP01 and TNP02 until EPA completion?
At this point only 80% of funding will have been drawn down and the next employer will be required to fund the remaining 20%, you would split the remaining 20% between training costs TNP 3 and the EPA cost TNP 4.
You also need to record a new Learner Employment Status record to reflect the new employer.
You should refund the original employer any overpayment of co-investment payments and charge this to the new employer.
Thanks Martin, good suggestion.
Issues we are having is with standards such as Dental that include mandatory qualifications, once the learners get the qual certificate they want to jump ship so they can get a higher paid job elsewhere. They don’t seem too bothered about the Apprenticeship certificate… mean we then go to try and sort out a change of employer very late into the programme.
Anyone else having this issue, if so any way to combat this?
