Christine Gregory

16-18 Traineeship



I am just wanting a bit of clarity as I have confused myself reading the funding rules.  When is the earliest a study programme can start in a funding year?

I understand that the funding year is 1st Aug to 31st July and a learner must be 16, 17 or 18 on 31st Aug.




No one has replied to this post.

1st August for the earliest starts Christine.

Hello sorry to jump on, we had 1st August too. With School Leavers, do you know if a 15 year old is okay to enrol early August 2022? They would be 16 on 31/08/2022 so assuming it's okay?
