QAR confusuion

Edited

Can anyone please help.

We have a cohort of learners with a PED June 2021 who will now not be taking EPA until NOV/DEC 2021 - depending on their progress and availability of EPAO.  

Will these learners be included in 20/21 QAR if they take thier EPA in Nov as they will fall into R14?
Will these learners be included in 21/22 QAR if they take their EPA in Dec as they have completed after the close of R14?

Also the last minimum standards document I can find is dated 18/19 - has another been issued? Should I still be working to this one?

Thanks

If they take and complete their EPA in Nov/Dec 2021 they will not be entered in the R14 20/21 ILR as this only includes data up to 31/07/2021, it would be entered in the 2021/22 ILR.

As the completion date is later than the planned end date these will be hybrid end year 2022.

If the learner passes their EPA with and achievement date in 21/22 then the learner will be counted in that cohort.

18/19 was the last year for minimum standards and at the moment there is no replacement for this. The Agency have said that they will use a wider set of measures to manage risk with the sector but they have not clarified what these are.

Gaynor,

I seam to remember from a previous post that you did not receive the completion payment, was this due to including them in R14 of the previous year when the achievement date was after 31/07/2020, if so then including them in this year’s ILR this will attract the payment.

Thank You both for the clarification.
