We have a few learners approaching EPA now and one currently in the EPA period.
Am I right in saying the following;
During the EPA period the status has to be changed to ‘the leaner has completed the learning activities leading to the learning aim’ and change to outcome 8 (results not yet known) for both the programme aim and the component aim.
You can only update the completion status and actual end date when the EPA has been completed see the following guidance.
The completion element is earned when you record a ‘Learning actual end date’ in the ILR and the ‘Completion status’ is recorded using code 2 (‘The learner has completed the learning activities leading to the learning aim’). You will earn this funding for the month that the ‘Learning actual end date’ takes place, even if this month is different to the ‘Learning planned end date’ of the programme.
For programme aims, the Learning actual end date of the whole programme must be recorded in this field. For apprenticeship standards with a Completion status of ‘complete’ (code 2), the Learning actual end date for the programme aim is the date that the learner completed all the learning activities for the apprenticeship. This includes both the training and end point assessment activities.
