Change of apprenticeship programme with existing Provider


Hi, if we have a learner that wishes to change apprenticeship programmes (and we action accordingly using Withdrawal Reason code 40 in the ILR), will the withdrawal of the first programme count negatively against our QAR?

Thanks Steve

No, because this is a Transfer, which is why you're using 40 in the withdrawal reason. Transfers are excluded from the QAR.

See Rules for identifying the excluded apprenticeship.

Programme aims where Completion Status is 3 (The learner has withdrawn from the learning activities leading to the learning aim), the Withdrawal Reason is 40 (Learner has transferred to a new learning aim with the same provider) and the Learning Actual End Date is before 1 August of the relevant year.

Where an apprentice has transferred to a different apprenticeship, as above, the Learning Start Date for the new apprenticeship programme (matching on Unique Learner Number and UKPRN) must be 120 days or less than the Learning Actual End Date of the original programme.

We will not exclude transfers from apprenticeships to other learning aims.

No, but must be within the time limits above.
