Change of Employer within 42 days

Created

If a learner changes employer before the qualifying start period of 6 weeks and they've been loaded onto PICs, do we have to treat them as a brand new start or can we use this existing record but just change the information to reflect the new employer information - I know we will need a new Commitment Statement and Apprenticeship Agreement for the new employer - MTIA

The PSM explains how to do this at the top of this page;

It wouldn't make any difference whether it was past 6 weeks or not. Because the apprentice is continuing, they will attract funding, and the first employer will need to pay (if they went past a month end with the first employer) from their levy pot, or pay the 5% if they're not small.
