    Good morning

    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.

    Many thanks in advance.





    see pages 19-24 of:

    You will need to check what immigration status they have on their residency permit.

    If your applicant is 16-18 there are specific points mentioned on page 22.

    Ignore the no public funds part on the permit, its irrelevant as per paragraph A117 on page 20

    Thanks Jessica.



    H Victoria,
    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.



    Education Funding = ESFA who fund apprenticeships. Apprentices are still taking part in education whilst completing their apprenticeship and are in receipt of ESFA funding.



    Thank You Jessica – Very Much appreciated.
