Change of Employer after Practical Period


Hi, we have an apprentice who has completed his Practical period and is now changing employer.  We have had to record him as a withdrawal as there has been more than 30 days since he left the previous employer.  How do we record start and planned end dates, OTJ hours etc?

As 20% of funding remains from the previous episodes completion payment, on the restart this will be recalculated between 80% on programme and a 20% completion payment.

It is up to the Provider to determine what the duration of the programme between the restart date and the planned end date, and this should be based on the actual circumstances but could be as little as one day. The OTJ hours relate to the whole programme (ILR Spec: over the full apprenticeship) so should be the same as recorded on the previous episode.
