I’m hoping you can clarify something for me. I have an applicant who has residence permit which states that work is permitted and no public funds. Would they be eligible for Apprenticeship funding? I am unable to locate any clear guidance.
Just to confirm with you and the answer / guidance provided by Jessica for the following:
A117. The learner’s immigration permission in the UK may have a ‘No recourse to public funds’ condition. Public funds does not include education or education funding, so this does not affect a learner’s eligibility, which must be decided under the normal eligibility conditions.
Are we clear that education funding covers an Apprenticeship – I am just looking for confirmation.
