    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?

    Not as an exemption, the assessed level is used to determine the level to undertake where they do not hold acceptable evidence.

    They need to have evidence of a qual, the initial assessment is not sufficient.

    If they’re coming out of BKSB as working at/above L2, then just put them in for the test and don’t claim the funding (because you won’t have to teach them anything).

    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

    That’s great thanks as always Martin.

    Also as an off shoot, if someone really cannot locate their certificates the LRS (PLR) printout isn’t enough evidence is it?

    Hi Erica,
    The PLR can be used as acceptable evidence, but it has to include the correct details and grade, see the following link.
