Notes

This field is only to be returned in specific circumstances identified by the Education and Skills Funding Agency (ESFA). See the ILR provider support manual for further details.

Code 2 'Entitlement to 16-18 apprenticeship funding, where the learner is 19 or over' should be used in the following circumstances:

  • Where the learner is re-starting a programme on or after their 19th birthday but is entitled to 16-18 funding.
  • For apprentices who are aged 19-24 and have an EHC plan.
  • Where the learner has transferred to a new apprenticeship pathway within the same framework, was aged 16-18 at the start of the programme, and is aged 19+ when they transfer to the new pathway.

If code 2 is recorded, then Engagement.ENGFFI must be recorded with code 1 'Learning aim fully funded by the ESFA' (Adult skills funded Apprenticeship Frameworks only).

If the learner started an apprenticeship programme aged 18 and then started one of the learning aims within that programme aged 19+, this indicator is not required.

Code 3 'Entitlement to 19-23 apprenticeship funding, where the learner is 24 or over' should be used where the learner is re-starting a programme on or after their 24th birthday but is entitled to 19-23 funding.

Code 3 should also be used for learners who have transferred to a new apprenticeship pathway within the same framework, were aged 19-23 at the start of the programme, and are aged 24+ when they transfer to the new pathway.

If code 3 is recorded, then Engagement.ENGFFI must be recorded with code 2 'Learning aim is co-funded by the ESFA' (apprenticeship frameworks only).

Code 4 'Entitlement to extended funding for apprentices aged 19 to 24' should be used where the learner was aged 19-24 at the start of the apprenticeship programme and is eligible for extended funding. See the Funding Rules for details of extended funding for apprentices aged 19 to 24. Code 4 should also be used for Funding model 36 funded apprenticeships where the learner was aged 19-24 at the start of the apprenticeship.
