transfer of apprentices


We have a number of apprentices transferring the programme from their current provider to us. They are continuing on the same programme and we have agreed a price based on progress to date. 

Can I ask how others collect evidence of the initial provider having ensured the 20% off the job was adequately delivered/recorded please?


No one has replied to this post.

We don't. We just make sure we've done the 20% OTJ for the duration they're with us. We can't be accountable for what the first provider did. Is there any guidance that suggests we should?

Thank you. 

No, not that I know of, I just wanted to be sure we were asking the right questions.

During an ESFA audit we were asked to collect evidence from the employer of payment - if not available then they have to pay again. If they have proof then I believe the ESFA can supply an LDM code to overwrite the ILR. If this isn't done then it may effect your completion payment and/or failure of EPA.
