Effective Implementation of the new RPL and Negotiated Price Rules for 2022/23
The funding rules for 2023/24 continue to focus on Recognising Prior Learning and Experience, underlining the importance of identifying learners starting points.
Our audit review work in 2022/23 has identified a recurring weakness with many providers failing to fully implement the ESFA funding rule requirements around negotiated price calculations and the recognition of prior learning and experience.
For an apprentice to be eligible for government funding providers must identify, recognise and in most cases adjust the programme content, duration and the funding draw down.
At this focused workshop, we will:
- review ESFA apprenticeship funding rules and expectations for RPL for 2023/24;
- Consider and identify, in a simplified form, eligible and ineligible costs and how to record them;
- consider the initial assessment process and the impact prior learning and experience has on the cost, content and duration of an apprenticeship programme;
- Talk through the strategies which a provider can employ to successfully implement the 2023/24 funding requirements.
Attendees will also be given access to the Solvendis excel based tool to assist with Negotiated Price and Prior Learning calculations.
