Planned hours on ILR


Hello All,

Please can I ask what other provider put as their planned hours for apprentices in the ILR since the change in Aug 2020. The ESFA guidance is a bit woolly.

It is the taught hours only? 


the Self directed study hours only?


both the taught ours and self directed study hours combined?

Any advise would be much appreciated.


Kind regards

It is not that simple as it can consist of hours taught by the Provider and the employer and self-study, see the guidance: https://www.gov.uk/government/publications/apprenticeships-off-the-job-training

And the guidance in the funding rules section Off-the-job training from page 12.
