Was just wondering how any employer-providers are currently evidencing such costs – for example, are they submitting estimated costs on the ILR for things such as travel, accommodation, etc?
Also, I’ve noticed that the rules state that providers can include on-costs for staff (e.g. pension, NI, etc). Is this applicable to staff only actually delivering the training/assessment, or can it include admin staff who are involved in input onto learning system, ILR returns, etc? I ask because I know that ‘administration related to the delivery of the apprenticeships’ and ‘processing of the ILR’ are stated as eligible costs, but just not sure if on-costs can also be included for these employees?
