This was sent out today. See the temporary flexibilities for providers section and it says you can mark them as complete as Steve mentions which allows you to receive completion payment.
Thanks Sue, our gaffer is not as patient so wanting achievement payment asap in order to pay the EPAO which I can understand.June 1, 2020 at 9:34 am in reply to: EW END-POINT ASSESSMENT FLEXIBILITY FOR CALCULATED FUNCTIONAL SKILLS QUALIFICATI #447119
Just out of interest how are you going to record these? Are you going to close them down as complete on the ILR or wait until you get the confirmation from the AOs? We have been told end of July from TQUK and Pearson but will have learners pass their EPA before this time.June 1, 2020 at 8:29 am in reply to: EW END-POINT ASSESSMENT FLEXIBILITY FOR CALCULATED FUNCTIONAL SKILLS QUALIFICATI #447111

Great thank you Steve!
Has anyone seen any updates on this yet? Tribal have released a guide on how to add it but it was the first I had heard. Hopefully not something we have to go back and add for all our suspensions and withdrawals?
Thank you Martin
Will that not mean we receive less funding each month? If its a 5k funding band and we enter TNP1 as £4200 and do not have a TNP2 they will work the funding out from the £4200 rather than the £5000
Here it is but not in the funding rules for some reason, think they have forgotten about it!

Thanks Steve, thats the actual register but in the rules it mentions EPAOs can have an agreement in principle but I don’t think there is anyway to see who has these other than contact the EPAO themselves.
I will just hangfire a few weeks to see if the register gets updated as I don’t want to risk putting anyone on if there is not one set up yet.
Hi Ruth I don’t think I worded my message fully. Don’t worry we are not doing anything dodgy, these cases are requested by the learner for example they are in gateway but then go off sick as an example. We had one the other month who was due to give birth and it came early. Rather than the learner being in gateway for 6 months we used a break. When they come back then yes they are still out of funding but a few sessions to get them caught up and they then get booked for EPA.
Hi Laura you can do this as we do it. Our regional teams sometimes want to do this to save having an out of funding showing on their lists although it makes no difference really as funding is not being claimed but it keeps them happy.
Hi we use docusign. It depends how you set it up. For sign ups we send a learner reg copy out first that comes back to us. The rest of it is then sent out such as commitment statement and app agreement and this gets signed by learner, employer and TC.
Thanks Steve. I thought I had seen it somewhere.
Hi, we have started doing fully remote sign ups this month.
We use docusign and have each form set up so they get emailed to employer, learner and trainer then the audit team to do a final sign off. Once complete they get downloaded and added to the evidence pack. IA’s are done through one of the common systems and skills scans are done via a form and a phone call. The final validation visit we then do over zoom to confirm everything and start learning.
I know some systems such as BUD are offering free use of their enrolment software too.
Hope this helps.
They have a youtube channel and they all get uploaded there, not sure if it has gone on just yet.
Thank you Josh I really appreciate the feedback. I have heard a lot of good things about BUD so far and am looking forward to them coming in for a demo.
I will double check but I am sure it comes up as an error if they are not on the minimum OTJ hours, this might just be our system though.
Yes that is my understanding. The OTJ will be the same unless when you bring them back on you have increased the LOS for whatever reason.
Thanks Ruth, I think allowing a few days and updating the ACT as the day before is probably more practical for us as we have nearly 10k learners so the work involved in putting in breaks and restarts would be huge so a more common sense approach is probably best used.
I read that you only use a break if it will affect funding which if they move in the same month it does not.
So basically we use a break for everyone who changes employer and does not start the new employer the following day?
Thanks Martin I thought that was the case.
Hi can I just ask on this thread how do we report on the ILR it is a levy transfer? I could not find any guidance anywhere about it.
