We are completing the final negotiations with 2 EPAO’s for our Apprentices and hope to soon have procured the best option.
The some of the learners that we will need to add an EPA record for fall into the last academic year. Am I right in assuming that I can add a TNP2 record to each learner for their EPA for the negotiated cost without having to do anything additional for the difference in academic year? E.g:
TNP1 = £6000
TNP2 = £650
And that after administering this change I will then have to go into the AS and accept the changes in price for each of these learners?
This is what I’ve gathered from the guidance I’ve read but it’s a little clunky and I just want to be sure!
The TNP1 price hasn’t changed from the previous year for any of the learners – it’s just the EPA (so TNP2 price) I need to add. So do I only add a TNP2? I can’t see anything that says I need to amend the TNP1 price for these learners – I just thought adding TNP2 might trigger a data lock?
That’s correct, you should expect a data lock after adding in the additional TNP-2 as the overall combined price will have changed even though the training portion will remain the same. This will need agreement from the Employer side for the overall price change.
