Functional Skills on the ILR



We have an Apprentice who has failed the final element of his legacy FS English and he can't resit as the qualification has expired. We've been told to register him on the 'new' FS which isn't a problem, but can anyone tell me what do we need do regarding the ILR?

Many thanks,

Thanks Martin.

He's completed all his learning on the legacy qualification we have received 100% funding for that aim. I presume we would adjust the funding for the new aim to draw down £0 as he can't be funded twice for the same qualification?

That's correct.
