Thanks martin, just to clarify my understanding, if a learner achieved grade 2 GCSE (Level1) they must be enrolled on FS Level 2 or GCSE would they not be able to enrol on a stepping stone qualification where there initial assessment results show them below level 1

Thanks for your reply.  Normally we would view evidence and list this on the forms however we've had a query where evidence has been viewed but not listed with the codes therefore they were querying if the self-dec would suffice.

Thanks for the response. If the duration required is longer than the remaining duartion of the BIL would the OTJ hour's need to be increase or would the residual OTJ hours prior to BIL remain ?

Thanks for your reply.  These are 16-19 funded traineeship learner's. The other provider is noted on the FRM report so we will try and get in contact with them.

Thanks for your response.  For this traineeship the learner is planned to be onprogramme for June 2021 to October 2021. The learner has shown on PDSAT report for Withdrawals and planned hours for learners continuing from a previous year 22Y-210. The implications on the report show 'Where a learner withdraws from any learning aims within the first six weeks of a study programme that is continuing from a previous year, the provider must update the annual planned hours to remove all of the hours within the funding year for these learning aims, except for any hours actually delivered within the first six weeks. and the 16 to 19 guidance states 'Q13 When does the first six weeks for setting and adjusting planned hours start for students who started their programme in the previous funding year? A13 You must set and adjust the planned hours for a student’s study programme in each funded year of their programme. No planned hours or start period completion rolls over from one funding year to the next. When the student’s programme crosses into a new funding year, for the purposes of recording planned hours you treat them the same as a new start. This means that the earliest possible start date for every funding year is always 1 August.' however as this mentions study programmes would you apply the same rationale for Traineeships?  So, as the six weeks start again from the beginning of the academic year, we would need to reduce the hour's to actual hours (due to the learner withdrawing within 6 weeks of their first attendance in august)?
