I would like to ask if anyone can help me here please:
I have a learner who has returned back in learning from BIL. He is doing a framework apprenticeship and the previous employer has paid the full 10% contribution within the 2 months from the start date.
The learner has returned back in learning with a new employer, can anyone please let me know how do I record this under the financial details.
Do I need to add TNP 3 (residual Price) and PMR 3 (Employer payment reimbursed by provider) for the new employer?
Do I need to pay back the 10% to the previous employer?
I have read the guidance from the ILR provider support manual in the section: Apprentice takes an agreed break in learning from page 101, but it didn’t helped me much.
A BIL only relates to the Employer and not the Provider and as such a learner must be withdrawn if not employed by the Employer who agreed the BIL.
The BIL record should be changed to a withdrawal and you will need to pay back to the previous employer the balance of their 10% contribution.
You should not have changed the employer on your system but added another record for the new employer.
You will need to include on the restart programme aim a TNP 1 to reflect the training cost agreed (balance left to deliver) but the TNP 2 would be the same as the original unless it is a different EPA org or cost.
