If it is more than 4 weeks record it as a BIL
In the OTJ guide under ‘WHAT CAN BE INCLUDED IN OFF-THE-JOB TRAINING’
18. “If it is unclear whether an activity is off-the-job training is there an easy way to check?”
Yes, there are four key tests:
Is the person signed up to the apprenticeship programme?
Is the activity directly relevant to the apprenticeship?
Is the activity teaching new knowledge, skills and behaviours?
Is the learning taking place in the apprentice’s normal working hours?
The guide does not specifically cover guidance on revision excepting for revision classes but where the apprentice is continuing to learn through revision and the above criteria are met then I see no reason why it would not be included.
You would accredit the prior achievement on 60068589 against the new aim 6033924X and they will then be issued with the certification against this aim when they achieve the remaining elements.
On the ILR you would indicate this as a transfer from the old aim to the new aim.
Your administrators will need to enrol them onto the new qual and claim the credits from the previous aim.
Have gone back to 2014 but cannot find this qualification as a requirement of any framework?
Are you sure you have the revised TNP amounts correct as these total 15009?February 20, 2020 at 11:14 am in reply to: DLOCK Errors remain even though ILR has been updated #429051
The original record should be reinstated as originally returned at start.
TNP 1 – Training cost – start date
You would then add new records from the date of change
TNP 1 – Training cost – date applicable from (must be in the current year)
TNP 2 – EPA cost – date applicable from (must be in the current year)

When EPA is recorded as completed you will receive a balance payment for any outstanding monthly payments due between the actual end date and the planned end data to make up the 80% of monthly funding due, the remaining 20% will also be paid as the completion payment.
For standards the outcome must be updated as per the results of the EPA and the achievement date entered to attract any balance payments and the completion payment.
The terms for payment should be included in your contract with the employer, normally 30 days from date of invoice as per the payments schedule.
I am not sure I was correct as this would be a change of employer.
The guidance only includes examples of a change from Levy to non-levy, you would have to record the new employer and the residual price.
Any new starts would be funded from the Levy but any existing Apprentices would continue to be funded as per the employers status as of there start date.
The funding rules only say the Apprentice ‘Not be asked to contribute financially to the cost of training, on-programme or end-point assessment’, CIPD membership is not part of this and it is normal for staff to pay professional membership fees.
The guidance for this is:
Apprentice changes employer during the apprenticeship
646. If there is a change to the apprentice’s employer during their programme, then you must record a new Learner Employment Status record to reflect this.
647. A new Apprenticeship contract type FAM record must be added if the new employer has a different apprenticeship contract type to the previous employer, for example if the apprentice has changes from a levy paying employer to a non-levy paying employer then a new FAM record with ACT2 must be recorded. There should be no changes made to the learning aims.
648. You must record a new price record on the programme aim; this price must reflect the cost of the remaining amount of the programme to be delivered with the new employer. This residual cost must be recording using AFinCode = 3 for training and AFinCode = 4 for assessment, as applicable.
If you followed the above you would not get the error.February 18, 2020 at 1:36 pm in reply to: change of employer within 2 months of expected end #428762
Any GCSE with English in the title acceptable where the minimum acceptable grade is C or
You would date it from the date the change has taken place but it must be in the current funding year.
The training price is TNP1 but you enter the EPA costs in TNP 2, the date must be in the current yeasr.
C12. Apprenticeship funding supports individuals to progress to higher levels of learning. Individuals who already have a qualification at Level 4 or above are only eligible for funding for a higher apprenticeship at Level 5 or above. They are not eligible for funding for an intermediate level, advanced level or Level 4 higher apprenticeship.
It would be a core aim for 16-18 but these are 19-24.
Are you recording the work experience learning aim as ZWRKX001, 19–24 traineeships are funded from this at the single rate of £970.
Plus funding for English and Maths and a flexible element if included.
You will need to extend the duration of the Apprenticeship on the commitment statement only to reflect the reduced hours, you do not change the duration on the ILR as the planned end date must not be changed on the ILR. The OTJ hours would not change.
I do not think that is the way to do it as it would only reflect the quality of the bid writer and not your organisation.
Would not the subject matter experts to know the answer?February 13, 2020 at 3:56 pm in reply to: [CLOSED] Q&A 10 – 14 Feb with ESFA on the Post 16 Contract Framework #427755
They can be funded at the level above that of the level they are assessed at.
The rules for employers require:
Actions to take where the apprentice withdraws from the apprenticeship, where the apprentice is no longer employed by the employer and has withdrawn from their programme (not redundancy) OR the apprentice chooses to withdraw prior to completion but remains with the same employer.
E235 The employer must:
E235.1 notify the main provider that the apprentice has left; and
E235.2 stop payments through their apprenticeship service account. This includes where the apprenticeship is funded by a transfer. The stop date that you apply in your account should correspond with the date the apprentice withdrew from the apprenticeship.
You can either use the notification from the employer or the date the stop was applied to their apprenticeship service account or ask the apprentice to confirm the date on their P45.
