Planned Duration on return from a break in learning

Edited

Hello, 

When a learner returns from break in learning the remaining duration is planned on the restart however If the learner and employer wish for the programme to be delivered over for example 10 month's instead of the remaining 6 due to being behind with progress can this be done or does the planned end date on the ILR have to be the remaining duration?

Also on the reverse, how would this apply if the learner and employer wish for the programme to be delivered over a shorter period of time?

Please note: all durations would meet minimum duration 

Thanks,

Common practice is to extend the PED commensurate with the time they had spent on a BIL, but there's nothing in the rules to prevent you from extending it by more or less, based on the apprentice's particular circumstances, you'll just get the same funding over a longer/shorter period. The guidance says;

When the learner returns to learning, you will need to re plan the delivery of any remaining training and/ or assessment following a break, a new programme aim (if required), learning aim(s), new planned end date should be created as in the guidance below.
