Thank you.  That is how I understood it. I have asked the EAPO where they got their information from and I suspect you are correct and they are getting mixed up with the 30 day gap between employers.

Thank you that makes sense.  It is obviously just worded incorrectly.

This seems rather harsh on the apprentice who has met all the other requirements of the apprenticeship.  The PGCE is funded through a Student Loan so would this make any difference to her situation?.

If we use EEF code 4 will that not claim another £1,000 for the apprentice as well?  Or will the system know the apprentice has already received the £1,000 and only pay the employer and provider.

Hi Martin We are not wanting to claim the care leaver bursary, just the additional payments for the provider and the employer.
