Withdrawal Policy

System progress monitoring identifies and highlights learners as having periods of non-activity (absence).

If periods of absence are causing concern, either through not logging in and completing learning sessions or unit task activities, the learners employer will be made aware of this problem.

Investigation will be undertaken, involving the Centre Administrator, Assessors, Internal Verifiers, and the employer to determine the reasons the learner is not progressing.

The investigation will determine whether the learner has withdrawn from learning, or whether the learner can be considered to be on an agreed break. Examples of reasons for an agreed break could be:

  • Sickness or injury.
  • Maternity/Paternity leave
  • Work secondment.
  • Operation deployment (MOD).
  • Religious reasons.
  • Other reasons can be considered.

If the learner is identified as being on an agreed break, funding ceases until the learner returns – a Datachange Form will be completed.

If the learner has withdrawn from training a Datachange Form will be completed with leave details.
