Hope you are well and starting to wind down for Christmas!
I just wondered if you could help me on the following, we have a learner was originally 16-18 and took a Break in Training, When she returned she was 19+ however, we kept this as Fully Funded due to her age band when she initially started.
I know previously I have read in the guidance that this is the correct thing to do however, I am struggling to find this paragraph now – please could someone point me in the right direction?
I had the same scenario…it’s in the Provider Support Manual (Page 62) rather than the Funding Rules..
