Change of employer, all OPP received but not yet in EPA process?


We have a learner who has moved employer but still has FS to do before going in to EPA. We have received all OPP. Original employer was a Levy payer, new would be non Levy.  Would the new employer need to reserve funds to cover 20% completion payment?

Employers that do not pay the apprenticeship levy, will not need to reserve funding when they approve a training providers request to ‘move’ an apprentice.

Thanks Martin.  Can I ask how we would then get the remaining funding for the apprentices to continue with a new employer?  Also, one of the learners we have received all OPP for their main aim but still have FS to complete and then the remaining 20% when they go in to EPA?

The funding is the same and from DAS and the ESFA it is only that none levy have no need to reserve funding.
