For study programmes would you expect to see a learner enrolled at the level above their initial assessment/diagnostic results for functional skills?
An example - Learner has achieved grade 2 at GCSE, IA and Diagnostic show entry 3 attainment - can the learner be enrolled at E3 and progress to L1?
No one has replied to this post.
No, See the guidance:
Note: prior attainment takes precedence over initial assessment results so the above applies.

Thanks martin, just to clarify my understanding, if a learner achieved grade 2 GCSE (Level1) they must be enrolled on FS Level 2 or GCSE
would they not be able to enrol on a stepping stone qualification where there initial assessment results show them below level 1
