App Duration & EPA


Hi Guys, I've tried looking in the Funding Guidance but cant see it now.

Is it still the case that the EPA is no longer part of the Apprenticeship Duration (Start-Planned End)? Pretty sure its still the case as the Practical Period Ends you mark them down as (Status: 1: Continuing   Outcome: 8 - Unknown) to identify the learner has gone to Gateway and the Practical Period has ended.

Someone has made me Second Guess myself :)

Thanks in Advance
