Apprentice age - 16 but ILR error


Hello all,

We have an apprentice with a DOB of 20/09/2005. He is 16 however when entering his details using the LET, we recieve an error stating he is not of school leaving age. He was due to start his apprenticeship on 07/10/2021.

I am assuming this is because he wasnt 16 before the end of the summer holidays, is anyone able to confirm this? 

Many thanks!

Yeah, he's only 15 based on 1 September, won't be able to start an App til next June...

He should be in school?
