They can’t have used all the funding if they didn’t complete, as there’s still the 20% Completion Payment (it’s not an achievement payment, as you can have it even if they fail). If the apprentices transfer to you, you can still claim that 20% the first provider won’t have had yet. You need to be clear what the first provider charged in the first place (might not have been band maximum, so there could be more left within the band), and whether the students are past their Planned End Dates yet. If they’re not yet at their Planned End Dates, there is likely to be more than the 20% left. They could have got near to Gateway early.
Is the price that the EPA centre is charging, precisely the same as 20% of the original price? That would be really unusual for us, it’s usually less than that. If they’re charging less, then the Assessment Price is what the EPA centre is charging, and the rest can be the Training Price. If the EPA centre price is exactly what you think is left in the funding band, then I don’t know what happens if you have an Assessment Price but no Training Price.
If their 20% Completion Payment was going to be £1,000, so that’s the price you charge (as it’s what’s left in the band), will £800 of that become your On Programme Payments, and £200 will be your Completion Payment? Not that this makes a difference to the prices you enter, just curious.
