    Is anyone able to confirm if there is a limit on how far we should accept Prior Attainment (specifically AEB)? I have in my head that there used to be a 5 year mark but I cannot track down where I read this anywhere?

    Does anyone else have a similar view or have I dreamt this??

    Many thanks,

    This is in the AEB funding rules:
    74.We do not set limits on the length of time of either prior learning or previously certificated learning. However, where the individual’s learning and/or achievement occurs outside of five years, you must assess whether the learning is still valid and relevant.



    Thank you!! I knew I had seen it!
