I am hoping that someone can help with the following scenario?
We had a 16-18 apprentice who left their employer and was subsequently withdrawn (Actual End Date – 31/01/2019), his original start date was 24/09/2018.
The candidate has now found a new employer and would like to re-start his apprenticeship, he commenced his employment with the new employer on the 11/02/2019. The candidate has now since turned 19, what I would like to know is the new employer liable to pay the 10% co-investment fee or is it based upon his age when he originally started his apprenticeship?
Also, I am currently using the Learner Entry Tool, is there any guidance as to how I would record a re-start on this?
You could use FAM type and code EEF 2 -the apprentice is restarting a programme on or after their 19 birthday and was 16-18 when they originally started.
581. If an apprentice is recorded with the FAM type EEF due to restarting their programme, then the Restart indicator (RES) must also be recorded in the Learning Delivery FAM fields.
On the ILR entry tool you will find the restart tick box on the Learning Delivery – Learning Information Tab and on the Funding and Monitoring Tab a drop down box for EEF (Eligibility for enhanced apprenticeship funding)
I don’t think the price on the programme aim should be the same as before. The rules for a return after an agreed break in learning are;
646. Record the price details as required using AFinType = TNP and the applicable
codes. The price recorded on the new programme aim should be the same as the
price prior to the break in learning unless you and the employer have negotiated a
new price for the programme.
If it wasn’t an agreed break, that should not be followed. The price on the new enrolment where it was an unplanned break, should be whatever price you’ve agreed for the remainder of the apprenticeship.
