Today ESFA has published new example scenarios in regards to wage top-up requirements for training time for furloughed apprentices. This is an important and a key clarification which will mean that more apprentices will be able to continue training whilst furloughed on the Covid-19 Job Retention Scheme (CJRS) and something AELP has been lobbying ESFA/HMT/HMRC for over the last number of weeks. These new scenarios reinforce AELP’s advice on wage top-ups for training hours which we published last month.
