Advice please re ongoing funding for redundant apprentices uner the ’12-week’ rule..
Provider funding rules P272.2 states ESFA will fund 100% of remaining costs for apprentices with less than 6 months to go when made redundant
P273.2 states ESFA “will fund the remaining costs of the price agreed between you and the
employer for 12 weeks, while the apprentice seeks another employer” for those with more than 6 months to go. However, there is no mention of 100%.
Question: for apprentices enrolled by a levy-paying employer through the apprenticeship service, who funds the ongoing cost of training for 12 weeks post redundancy? Is it the employer’s levy account or the ESFA?
