    Hi Lauren,
    The example (2) was only for those who completed learning prior to 1 August 2019, as this learner has an actual end date after this date and they have not completed the EPA in 19/20 you would carry them over to 20/21 and record the completion in the 20/21 ILR.
    You should not enter any completions after 31/07/2020 in R14.

    Jane did not specify the FM so included the definitions from the ILR Specification but yes failed to include Planned hours – PHours.

    Additional Delivery Hours
    The number of additional guided learning hours required for the learning aim

    Aim Type 4
    Adult Skills (FundModel 35)
    ESF (FundModel 70)
    Other Adult (FundModel 81)
    This field should only be used to record additional guided learning hours that have been delivered for ESOL units or qualifications where a learner needs additional learning to that funded through the Adult Skills funding model or ESF funding model.

    This field collects the total Actual off-the-job training hours (as defined in the funding rules) that is delivered to the individual apprentice over the practical period of the apprenticeship (before gateway). This should be entered at the end of the apprenticeship programme.

    It would be a withdrawal (as a transfer) and new start

    See the PSM ‘Transfers to a different apprenticeship with the same provider’
    If the apprentice changes to a new framework, standard or pathway you must:
    Close the programme aim and any learning aims that the apprentice is no longer continuing with. Refer to the Closing aims in guidance for recording a learner transfer to a new learning aim within the same provider. Update the Date applies to for any Apprenticeship contract type FAM Record on these aims.

    If applicable, record repayments of employer co-investment using AFinType = PMR and AFinCode = 3.

    Create a new programme aim, and new learning aims if required. Record the new framework/standard/pathway as applicable. Refer to guidance below for recording new aims when an apprentice transfers to a different apprenticeship programme.

    The technical funding guidance for 20/21 includes the following:
    202. From 1 August 2020 all new apprentices must start on apprenticeship standards, so no further new starts from this date will earn framework uplift. Apprentices who have transferred to another provider, or restarted their apprenticeship, after 1 August 2020 will still earn framework uplift.
    This implies that they can restart on a Framework, so this is an issue that they need to resolve on DAS.

    Hi Lisa,
    The incentive is only for new starts and not restarts, the AS are aware that currently Frameworks are not on DAS and that this is an issue for restarts, I think this is a known issue but they do not publish known issues for DAS and have not said if this will be corrected even though it conflicts with the funding rules.
    You can only follow the guidance from the AS or hope that the ESFA picks this issue up.

    Hi Dawn,
    This error indicates that the aim HE record does not contain the Domicile code .so I would check the HE record on EBS.

    Hi Karen,
    In the 19/20 LET you would exclude any learners who started after 31/07/2020 (exclude tick box) to produce your R14.
    You would then import into the 20/21 LET R14 and this should migrate the learners required but then you will have to add back the learners excluded in the 19/20 LET who started after 31/07/2020.

    Hi,
    Within six months would include the day exactly six months from their planned end date, I would expect the ESFA to confirm this.

    Hi,
    The server name is your computer name to find this: open settings – system and click ‘about’ and your server name is the same as the Device name under Device specifications.
    Replace the (LOCAL) with your computer name in the string, I expect the instance would be SQLEXPRESS but if this does not work replace it with a space as you may not have a named instance.

    Hi Hannah,
    It looks like PDSAT cannot find SQL server from the connection string you have entered, you should use the Server Name and then the instance name but if you do not have an instance name then leave a space after the ‘\’.

    Hi,
    The funding rules refer to the employer rules for this:
    E105 You will be eligible to receive an incentive payment for hiring a new apprentice for an apprenticeship start if, at the start of the apprenticeship, the apprentice is a new employee. You will be required to sign a declaration confirming that they are a new employee when making a claim through the apprenticeship service.

    E106 That apprentice must (subject to paragraphs E107 and E108):
    E106.1 have a contract of employment start date with you between 1 August 2020 and 31 January 2021 (inclusive);
    E106.2 not have been employed by you (or the maintained school or connected company or charity – see paragraph E107) within the six months prior to the employment contract start date; and
    E106.3 have an apprenticeship agreement containing a start date between 1 August 2020 and 31 January 2021 inclusive (subject to paragraph E110 regarding redundant apprentices).

    Hi Pauls,
    I would not record those on a BIL in the ILR until they return and restart with you, you could record them on your MI system and flag them as not to be exported to the ILR if you need a record to follow up at a later date.

    Hi Kei,
    If they plan to return to the same apprenticeship programme then it would be a BIL but the decision to take a break in learning, the reason for the break and its expected duration must be agreed with the employer.

    Hi Chloe,
    For Apprenticeships you need to copy over to 20/21 those who were still in learning (completion status 1), those on a BIL (completion status 6) and those awaiting results (outcome 8) for the full details see the following:

    Hi,
    do not know what you are disagreeing with all I said it is better to have a system that prevents errors at the data entry point.
