Apprentices made redundant before 15 October 2020

 

Apprentices who were made redundant before 15 October 2020 and are in the last 6 months of their training

We’ll fund any remaining costs of the price negotiated between the provider and the previous employer (up to the funding band maximum).

Within this 6 month period, if the apprentice:

  • finds a new employer to complete their apprenticeship with, then the new employer will take on the liabilities for funding
  • starts a job that’s unrelated to their apprenticeship, we’ll continue to fund any remaining costs

 

Apprentices who were made redundant before 15 October 2020 and have more than 6 months left on their apprenticeship training

We’ll fund any remaining costs of the price negotiated between the provider and the previous employer, for a maximum of 12 weeks.

Within this 12 week period, if the apprentice:

  • finds a new employer to complete their apprenticeship with, then the new employer will take on the liabilities for funding
  • starts a job that’s unrelated to their apprenticeship, we’ll continue to fund any remaining costs for up to 12 weeks
  • If the apprentice does not find a new employer within 12 weeks, they’ll be withdrawn from their apprenticeship. They can return to the same apprenticeship at a later date and will not need to satisfy the 12 month minimum duration rule.
