Can I check whether Learning Support/EAS should be claimed based on when we pay for the support or based on when it is being used by the learner?
For example, where our assessment centre recommend the following package of support for a learner:
and our supplier(s) for the above need payment for the whole lot up front; do we claim:
Also, I'm assuming that we can't claim for warranties on the equipment - is that right?
Any advice would be much appreciated :)

We claimed for the equipment, specialised software and training once the assessment had been completed and we had the recommendations. This was not in month 1 of the course as it took some time for the assessment recommendations to be agreed.
We also claim for £175 support costs monthly which is covered by the £150 and EAS of £25. This is only claimed on the months that it is used i.e. in this instance when they are on campus

I would do it via your first option, £150 until it's paid for, and if it isn't covered by the number of months attended pay for the additional via EAS.
