If a learner has an EHCP and has had an assessment from our learner support manager and has already attained Entry Level 3 in English and Maths what level if any would the learner have to achieve if studying a Level 3 Early Years Educator apprenticeship

This rather depends on the content of their EHCP? It's not a get out of jail free card... You need to do a full assessment as per P46 (24/25 rules) and, even then:

Although the apprentice will be exempt from the regular English and / or maths
minimum requirements, providers must plan and evidence how the apprentice
will access further literacy and numeracy development, including level 1 and
level 2 courses, as part of their overall training provision, if appropriate. 

Ofsted, in particular, wouldn't be happy if the learner had *no* E&M in their programme outside of very specific circumstances. L3 EYE will have a bunch of KSBs that, I'd guess, would need a decent level of English and Maths to successfully complete, so how are you going to make sure the learner can deal with them?
