    Hi,

    Could anybody please clarify the following:

    P129.1: Where the apprentice holds neither level 1 nor level 2 approved
    qualifications and is judged by the main provider to be working
    below level 1 standard in English/maths:

    Apprentices must study towards and achieve English and maths
    qualifications of at least level 1 (functional skills level 1 or GCSE grade E
    or 2), and start, study towards and take the assessments for level 2
    qualifications in these subjects. The apprentice is not required to achieve
    level 2 qualifications in order to successfully complete their apprenticeship.

    These requirements must be fulfilled before the apprentice takes the endpoint
    assessment or achieves an apprenticeship framework.

    Main providers must also ensure that any level 1 training and
    assessments are taken at an early enough stage in the apprenticeship to
    allow sufficient time for an apprentice to study towards and take the
    assessments for the level 2 qualification, after a level 1 has been
    achieved. Where the apprentice does not achieve the level 2, main
    providers can claim only for the training given.

    P129.3: Where the apprentice already holds approved level 1 qualifications:
    Apprentices must start, continue to study and take the assessments for a
    level 2 English and/or maths (functional skills level 2 or GCSE). This
    requirement must be fulfilled before the apprentice takes the end-point
    assessment or achieves an apprenticeship framework.

    There is no repeat of this sentence in P129.3 ‘The apprentice is not required to achieve level 2 qualifications in order to successfully complete their apprenticeship’

    So does this mean the apprentice only needs to attempt and NOT actually have to achieve Level 2 if they hold the approved level 1 English and/or maths qualification as part of their Level 2 apprenticeship?

    Thanks in advance.

    Where it is not required by the Framework/Standard they only have to undertake the assessments the result is immaterial.
