    Paragraph P273 of the Apprenticeship funding Rules does not cover the following eventuality. Can anyone advise, on the following, based on any ESFA guidance in circulation:

    Can an employer of an apprentice who is to be made redundant more than six months before their planned final day of their practical period, use their levy account to fund the apprenticeship negotiated price in full, for the apprentice to remain in learning with learning delivered remotely by the training provider, and complete their practical period?

    Um, no?

    You get 12 weeks to find them a new employer and restart them, but an employer can’t use their levy funds for someone they don’t employ.

    The only vague exception is if the app finds a new job and the initial employer transfers levy funding to the new employer? But that wouldn’t work if the new employer was also a levy payer.
