Judgement of an apprentice’s current level
Funding Rules for training providers states;
P136: If an apprentice does not have acceptable evidence of previous attainment of
English and/or maths you should carry out a judgement of their current level. You
must use current assessment tools based on the national literacy and numeracy
standards and core curriculum to do this.
Does this mean that if an apprentice cannot find/supply their GCSE certs or equivalent, the ESFA will accept a BKSB or initial assessment result as evidence of their current level AND as exemption for their maths and English qualification?
With regards to exemptions is there a source of acceptable transferable skills for standards eg with frameworks there was an ACE actual list of exemption equivalent qualifications so we are still using this for standards but is this correct
