We have a 20 year old apprentice who is a care leaver. She has already claimed her care leaver bursary on her intermediate apprenticeship. She has now started an advanced apprenticeship. Are the provider and employer still entitled to the additional payments in the 2nd apprenticeship and how do we claim this through the ILR. Do we do this through the Learning Delivery and Monitoring (FAM) and use code 2 in the EEF section?
No one has replied to this post.
They can only claim the care leavers bursary once, see the funding rules.

We are not wanting to claim the care leaver bursary, just the additional payments for the provider and the employer.

If an apprentice started their programme aged 18 and then is 19+ when they start one of their component aims within the programme, an EEF code is not required.

If we use EEF code 4 will that not claim another £1,000 for the apprentice as well? Or will the system know the apprentice has already received the £1,000 and only pay the employer and provider.

Why would you use EEF 4?
126. We will only pay this once per apprentice. If we have already paid the additional payment to this apprentice through another provider, we will not pay you. The apprentice will not be eligible again for the bursary if they start a further apprenticeship after having competed one and received the bursary.
