Apprentice restart

Created

Hi,

We have an apprentice who was withdrawn due to a change of employer not being actioned within 30 days, he is restarting this week, so which funding rules will apply to him as he originally started under 21/22 funding rules?

Thanks, Christine

If he is a restart, it will be the funding rules from his original start date. Worth bearing in mind however that there are some rules within the new funding rules which are applicable regardless of start date

He is not a new start in 22/23 so the 22/23 funding rules will only apply where it states it applies to previous starts, see below.

P13 These rules will apply to all apprenticeship programmes starting on or after 1 August 2022, with the following exceptions:

P13.1 The redundancy rules (detailed in paragraphs P274 to P275). These rules will apply irrespective of the apprentice’s start date and will include existing learners who started their apprenticeship programme in previous funding years.

P13.2 The rules on changing to a new version of a standard (detailed in paragraphs P285 to P298), which describe the rules for when an existing apprentice wishes to move to a new version of the same standard. These rules will apply irrespective of the apprentice’s start date and will include existing learners who started their apprenticeship programme in previous funding years.

P13.3 The rules on English and maths (detailed in paragraphs P134.1 and P138.1). These rules will apply irrespective of the apprentice’s start date and will include existing learners who started their apprenticeship programme in previous funding years.
