Entitlement to funding for an apprenticeship


Hi I have a person who is 18 years old and leaving sixth form this summer. Their status in the UK has not been confirmed, and they applying to stay under humanitarian grounds. They were born in the UK and were taken to Nigeria as a baby, they returned in Dec 2021.

I think that they would not be eligible to apply for an apprenticeship until their status is confirmed. Any guidance would be appreciated.

Hmmm, they must have some sort of status?

If they're 18, there are all of the 16-18 exceptions in P303 (23/24 Rules) on top of the usual rules which might give you a little more flexibility.
