Return to Apprenticeship after Withdrawl and RPL


When a learner returns to an apprenticeship (with same provider) after Withdrawing, do we need to re-do the RPL and adjust the price?  Or do we just deliver the remaining programme and draw down the remaining funding? 


No one has replied to this post.

Tendency is towards the latter, given it's the same apprenticeship. Only wrinkle might be if there's been a significant furlough between them withdrawing and restarting, during which you might suspect they've gained substantial experience that relates to the remaining training. It's a judgement call, but if the answer to "could I reasonably defend this position to an auditor?" is yes, you'll almost certainly be fine.

Thanks Ben, that was my leaning too!
