Advanced learner loan and Apprenticeship?

Created

Hi all,

we have a learner who is in their 3rd year of being on a course that is funded through advanced learner loan who is now wanting to come onto an apprenticeship alongside the loan qual?

Is this permitted or is this classed as dual funding?

I cant see anything in the advanced learner loan guidance that says this is not permitted?

Check P79-80 of the apprenticeship funding rules;

Basically, it's a no unless they're less than 4 weeks away from the end of the loan funded course.
