Department for Education and Skills Funding Agency Guidance - COVID-19

The Education Skills Funding Agency (ESFA) have now released their guidance with regards to apprenticeships during the COVID19 pandemic – see here. Beyond these measures the usual funding guidance will apply to support apprentices who cannot currently continue in learning or who fall out of work as a result of COVID-19.

Health Education England (HEE) are currently drafting further guidance documents and FAQs which will be hosted on HASO and are in daily communication with the ESFA and will continue to lobby for greater flexibility in their approach to apprenticeships; in particular, for apprentices undertaking programmes to become registered practitioners who already meet the registration criteria, HEE are also seeking to gain allowances for EPA.

More information can be found on the below document.
