A Subcontractor we have has just read the funding rules 12/13 and has asked the question as to why we tell them if someone has a degree they are ineligible. I have just spent half a hour looking through the rules and cannot find where it says this. Can someone please point me in the right direction?
Hi, with regards to Apprenticeships, they are inelgible for funding if they have a prior attainment of Level 4 or above and are wanting to complete an Intermediate, Advanced or Higher Apprenticeship at Level 4. They can, however, complete a Higher Apprenticeship at Level 5. This is in paragraph 112 of the Funding Rules.
For non-apprenticeships (ER funded), I don’t think there are any set rules on learners having a degree or prior attainment of L4. Obviously, the important factors with this is whether the learner has prior attainment of Level 2 or Level 3+
