    Hi Peter,
    You need to select the directory where your xml file has been exported to by your MI system.

    Hi Kelly,
    All the funding rules require is ‘You must have a legally binding contract with each delivery subcontractor’.
    The delivery subcontract will specify what services the Prime and the subcontractor are responsible for and this will be reflected in the top slice that the Prime charges.

    Hi Ruth,
    The guidance for the actual end date specifies ‘begun the End point assessment period’ so where a learner has refused to undertake the EPA I would say withdrawn, where they withdraw during or before the EPA is completed I would also say it should be withdrawn but in any event the Achievement (completion) date should be left blank as they did not complete the EPA.

    Did not complete EPA then no completion payment.

    The more changes they make the more confusing it gets.

    Hi,
    This is included in the guidance
    Overseas qualifications will be acceptable where there is clear evidence, from NARIC (via a certificate/statement of comparability) that the qualification is an equivalent level to the minimum requirements for English and maths and there is additional comparison information that confirm the qualification is an equivalent of GCSE English and/or maths (A* to C).

    Hi,
    Others have reported similar issues with Dlock11 errors where funded by a transfer and the non-levy payer indicator record on the Apprentices Service has not been changed to indicate levy. As the service desk has escalated the issue I would wait and see what the advice is.

    Hi,
    The period end reports only report the Total employer contribution collected (PMR) up to and in this funding year that is up to 31/07/2019, as the FMR12 only reports what is outstanding from what should have been collected in the funding year the comparison is valid.
    Unless you collect contributions upfront there will be a delay in recording payments, but these reports are only to inform you, they are not error reports but reports of fact on what has been recorded on the 18/19 ILR so that you can chase up any payments that are overdue.
    The R13 and R14 reports will not include any payments made that are included in the 19/20 ILR.

    All I will say is that retention is a measure in FE, but it is not in Apprenticeships although the concept could be applied to any planned learning activity.

    Hi Alan,
    This post relates to Apprenticeships, what you say may be relevant to FE but for Apprenticeships there is no concept of retention.

    Hi,
    I do not even know if there will be period end reports on the SLD, they may just add them to the reports download after the end of the period but who knows?
    Do not expect any payment reports until R03

    We know what we do not know.

    Hi,
    As you have said they have not completed all the elements then it would be a withdrawal, if the learner did want to restart at a later date this would be ok as they had not completed but this would be complicated if you had put on the ILR they had completed.

    If you put withdrawn the learner has not completed as required by the funding rules and would be ineligible for funding.

    As they must have undertaken the test it can only be completed with either pass or fail.

    Hi,
    If they have set up their accounts correctly you would not expect to have the Dlock error, I would advise you ask the receiving employer to contact the Apprenticeship Service to resolve the issue.

    See the reply from the ESFA above, the ESFA will process the completion payment in 19/20 when all co-investment has been reported as from their current records and not based on the R14 FRM12.

    Hi,
    I have not seen any guidance on that scenario, but I expect it will happen
    The funding rules require that:
    P156 The apprentice must be employed until the end-point assessment is completed. The only exception is where the apprentice has been made redundant and we are funding the apprenticeship to completion (see paragraphs P256 to P257). Consideration should be given to the potential time needed for any re-sit and/or re-training prior to re-taking the end-point assessment so the apprentice remains employed during this time.

    If it is practical or possible to complete the EPA for this scenario is another question but as long as the EPAO agrees to and can continue with the EPA to completion I see no reason why not.

    Hi,
    It all depends on what proportion you are delivering see the following from the funding rules.

    311. The Funding adjustment for prior learning field should be completed with the proportion of the learning aim that is still to be delivered if the learner is not undertaking the full scope of the learning aim because of prior learning. This can be because of a break in learning, a transfer from another provider, or because of prior learning when they join as a new learner on a new learning aim.

    That is correct as they must have undertaken the assessments and tests so you must have a result pass or fail, it cannot be withdrawn.

    Hi,
    That is the normal ILR rule that you only include data up to the 31st July in an ILR year
    Another that needs to be added to the migration guidance

    Hi,
    As they are showing an actual end date of 2017 and you withdrew them in 2018 are you sure the data includes 18/19 withdrawal and not the BIL record?

    Hi Alastair,
    It would be yes and yes as you are only adding a unit or units of a stepping-stone qualification for some learners (those that could progress from non-regulated), I think this was the reason for funding units, to aid progression.

    Hi,
    I expect it would be included in the normal report download for the period but may not be available until after period end, will have to wait and see in R03.
