Hi, I had a response from the ESFA on this one. Our learners PED was prior to the lockdown, so doesn’t meet the requirement. But looks like they are fixing this error for next months submission?
“Thank you for contacting the Service Desk regarding the ProgType_13 error. After checking the data I can confirm that the learner should have completed their 6 months Traineeship before the Covid-19 lockdown on the 23 March, which affected business closure. Due to this the learners are not in scope for the extension and should be withdrawn/ completed as per the normal Traineeship policy.
Any Traineeship learners that were expected to complete after the 23 March will be given an extension to their programme for up 12 months and the error will automatically clear for the R11 data return.
