    Hiya

    Can someone who is on an apprenticeship enrol on an ESF programme at the same time?

    The Funding rules show this:

    Apprentices must not be enrolled on another apprenticeship, or another DfE funded FE/HE programme, at the same time as any new apprenticeship they start.

    We are assuming the ESF would still fall under a DfE funding.

    So this says they cannot be on a programme at the start of an apprenticeship, but what about if they enrol on the other programme after starting the Apprenticeship?

    Thanks

    From the ESF funding rules:
    82. You, your subcontractor and grant recipients must only engage participants and employers who meet the service-specific eligibility criteria set out in the relevant service specification.
    89. Eligible activity for each service is set out in the relevant service specification.

    This normally excludes those in mainstream provision funded by the Education Funding Agency although you will need to check the relevant service specification.
