I have a few restarts, where I initially had issues restarting them after their break in learning – As it meant inputting a new start date and calculating a new end date so the apprenticeship met the 12 month duration.
Now I have a learner who restarted and although in total has been on programme for over 12 months, from the original start date, from the new re-start date the learner is completing too early.
When i run the ILR i am getting the error message programme does not reach the required minimum duration.
So how do i complete restarts? as they will never be within their 12 month duration.
Is this our MI system? – it doesn’t seem to be accounting for the original start date.
Have i miscalculated the new end date? (i’m certain i haven’t as i get error messages when i put anything shorter than 12 months on a restart for an end date)June 26, 2019 at 3:05 pm #377811
Are you returning the Original learning start date and the Restart indicator, the new learning planned end date should be calculated from the balance to complete the original duration.
From the guidance
Table 10: Recording new aims when an apprentice returns from an agreed break in learning
Learning start date
Programme aim – Date on which the apprentice restarts the programme after the break
Component aims – Date on which the apprentice restarts the learning aim after the break
Original learning start date
Programme aim – Date on which the apprentice originally started the programme
Component aims – Date on which the apprentice originally started the learning aim
Learning planned end date
Programme aim – New planned end date for the programme
Component aims – New planned end date for the learning aim
Funding adjustment for prior learning
Programme aim – Not returned
Component aims – Proportion of the aim still to be delivered (English and maths aims only)
Learning Delivery FAM
Programme aim – Use code RES1
Component aims – Use code RES1

Hi Martin –
Yes there is an original start date recorded and a restart indicator being returned. There is also a fund Adjustment for the component aims. I will check the code is RES1 – as far as i can see it is. (but i don’t code the software).
I think the issue is that we record the indicator and original start date against the learner as a whole, and it should be being applied to all AIMS in the ILR return and not against individual AIMS – I think that then when we restart the learner it is picking it up for the main programme aim but not the component aims possibly?
I will pass this to the IT team for our MI system.
Thank you.June 26, 2019 at 5:11 pm #377840
