    Ceribland – apologies, your response only dropped into my inbox the other day? BKSB results do not suffice for older apprentices. If they cannot find their certificates or obtain reprints via the GOV system (I know this is restricted at the moment due to COVID-19) they have to retake the English and/or Maths exams before the end of their apprenticeship (the EPA I believe).
    Kind regards, stay safe

    Good morning “itsme”
    I will always say thanks for feedback however when comments are made and you do not know the full background or situation, I feel it is necessary to say I find your comment somewhat rude and I would be tempted to not use this forum again if I thought that it would incite such comment.
    I am currently trying to learn about the administration of degree apprenticeships. I do not deliver them myself as I am not an academic. I just wanted to try and gain clarity regarding Level 2 English and maths where the apprentice is perhaps older and is unable to locate O Level certs for example.
    Please do not assume…we all know what can happen there!

    Hi Martin

    Thank you. So that would include BKSB diagnostic testing? What are the lowest acceptable percentages please?

    Kind regards

    Also whilst you are asking about PL, please can I double check with someone…?

    According to the funding rules:
    “Judgement of an apprentice’s current level
    Each apprentice must undertake skills testing of English & maths irrespective of providing evidence of their Level 2 in these subjects. This can be completed as part of the induction and current assessment tools based on the national literacy and numeracy standards and core curriculum must be used to do this, e.g. BKSB diagnostic assessment testing.
    If an apprentice does not have acceptable evidence of previous attainment of Level 2 English and/or maths, i.e. GCSE certificates (or approved equivalent), you should carry out a judgement of their current level. You must use current assessment tools based on the national literacy and numeracy standards and core curriculum to do this, e.g. BKSB diagnostic assessment testing.”

    Does this mean that it is NOT necessary to track down GCE/CSE/GCSE certs as long as diagnostic testing has been done. What are the lowest acceptable percentages please?
