Hi, I would like to enquire if the funding is available for Level 2 Functional Skills English and or Maths if the Apprentice has a Grade 3/D and is this required to be entered on the ILR? Referring to current guidance learners are required to work towards Level 2 if they do not already hold Grade 4/C or above. However, I am aware that this has changed within the last financial year, could someone please clarify this for me please. Thanks in advance. Helen.

Yes? GCSE 3/D is not equivalent to FS L2.

The only thing that's changed is for learners on L2 Apps who no longer have to take the FS L2 test if they arrive with nothing. If this learner was on an L2 App, they'd be exempt from L1 FS but have to start and take the test for L2. If they're on an L3 or above app, they'll need to pass L2 FS to complete their app.

Thanks Steve, does this need to be recorded on the ILR?
