Ruth Canham-James Hi Ruth - I think I've worked it out, based on your comments above and may well create a video for our team to follow. Here's where I have got so far (reports mentioned are available via submit-learner-data website)... For those achievement payments which are being withheld as co-investment does not appear to have been received Check this is the case using the Learner Level View report (available once the returns window has closed). If you have a Completion Holdback, then you fall into this category. You'll find the apprentice name and employer from this report. Check the Apps Co-investment Contributions Report to find out how much should have been invoiced. Find the relevant employer and check column Q, Total co-investment (below band upper limit) due from employer in previous funding years and note the amount. Check column S, Total co-investment (below band upper limit) due from employer in this funding year and note this amount. Add the two together and invoice the levy employer. Checking if co-investment needed when levy employers run out of funds Using Ruth's guidance, this is how I interpret this situation: Go to Apps Monthly Payment Report, filter column AN, Funding line type, to show only 16-18 levy and 19+ levy rows. If you are an employer-provider, you may also want to filter out where column X=356 (Learning delivery funding and monitoring type - learning delivery monitoring (A)). Look to the second column for each month. for example April (R09) co-investment payments to see if payments are expected. I'd be happy to receive guidance from others on this and I'm very grateful to Ruth too!

Apprenticeship Service Engagement: we have the following situation with 10 employers who all had apprentice starts from 1-Aug-20. The employers have registered with the Apprenticeship Service, the apprentices actually started on 1-Sep but due to a lack of understanding on how the system worked, they reserved funding after the apprentices had started. Hindsight being a wonderful thing, we realise that this should not have happened and have put processes in place to prevent this occurring. But, those employers who were in this position and who did not reserve funds have had their apprentices backdated, those who took the trouble to reserve funding, have not. There is nothing in the funding guidelines, technical funding guide or provider support manual to suggest how we deal with these 10 employers. We can't stop and restart them (the Provider Support Manual states "You must not make any changes to the start or planned end dates after the funding qualifying period, except to correct errors"), there's no BIL, no change in learning aims, no change to TNP, no change to employer or training provider. How do we solve this issue please? Clearly, the employers want their incentive payments!
