I have a question related to Modern Apprentices in my business.
Where appropriate, learning providers will still be working with apprentices to progress with their qualification. Learning providers will find themselves in different situations during this time so please do not worry if your staff’s learning provider has been furloughed. This will not affect the learner’s place on the programme as their apprenticeship will be put on hold until the time that work can resume.
Just like any other member of staff, where appropriate, Modern Apprentices can be furloughed. We ask that you let their learning provider know if this is the case, and keep in contact with them where possible to discuss any changes to their situation.
Modern Apprentices can continue online training while furloughed and, from 8 June, employees can start a Modern Apprenticeship while they are on furlough in agreement with their employer and learning provider.
The latest guidance for learning providers is available on our dedicated training provider webpage.
