Where an apprentice is struggling on the level of standard, can we transfer them down a level (same standard) without having to do a further 12 months as minimum duration? The apprentice has already done a significant amount of work at the higher level but is struggling and rather than withdraw the apprentice and make them start all over again (on work already covered), is there a way to drop a level without doing the minimum duration?
No one has replied to this post.
Individual standards do not have levels as they are related to an occupation.
It would have to be a withdrawal and new start.

Thanks for the prompt reply, Martin. Does this mean it can be a withdrawal and a restart and recalculated to just the amount of training and assessment required eg. 6 months instead of 12?

No all new starts must meet the minimum duration and the 20% OTJT requirement, for your scenario it is doubtful due to APL that they would be eligible.

I thought as much. Thanks for the confirmation.
