Yes, we usually have to go to our contract manager which helps speed up a response.

Hi, My understanding is that you can only claim the funding for a level 1 FS if the apprentice is assessed to be working below level 1. If the apprentice is assessed to be working at level 1 or above, they will only be funded for level 2 - they must still achieve level 1 but it will not be funded. Where the apprentice holds neither level 1 nor level 2 approved qualifications and is judged by the main provider to be working below level 1 standard in English / maths: Apprentices must study towards and achieve English and maths qualifications of at least level 1 (Functional Skills level 1 or GCSE grade E or 2), and start, study towards and take the assessments for level 2 qualifications in these subjects. The apprentice is not required to achieve level 2 qualifications in order to successfully complete their apprenticeship. These requirements must be fulfilled before the apprentice takes the end-point assessment. Main providers must also ensure that any level 1 training and assessments are taken at an early enough stage in the apprenticeship to allow sufficient time for an apprentice to study towards and take the assessments for the level 2 qualification, after a level 1 has been achieved. Where the apprentice does not already hold approved level 1 qualifications, but is judged by the main provider to be working at level 1 standard in English / maths: Apprentices must start, continue to study and take the assessment for level 2 English and maths (Functional Skills level 2 or GCSE). If they do not achieve a level 2, you must then ensure they take the assessment for level 1 English and / or maths – this is because they must secure the level 1 qualification in order to complete their apprenticeship. You must ensure that any level 2 training and assessments are taken at an early enough stage in the apprenticeship to allow time for the apprentice to take the level 1 assessment if they first do not achieve the level 2. In this scenario we will not fund costs for level 1 training and assessment. These requirements must be fulfilled before the apprentice takes the end-point assessment.
