Additional Learning Support (ALS) is provided when a learner needs assistance with difficulties or health problems that affect their ability to complete an apprenticeship.

How to: Access Additional Learning Support
In order to claim Additional Learning Support, a provider needs to complete three key requirements:
- Identify the need- This could be through the BKSB assessments during sign-up or self-declaration from the learner and may occur at any point during the apprenticeship.
- Create a plan- Indicate what is going to be done to support the learner. Who will do what, why, where and when.
- Actual delivery- Record what support has been given in line with the plan.
At Bud, we've developed a systemised approach which allows you to meet these 3 requirements.
- During sign-up and on an ongoing basis we enable you to review any initial assessments that may have been taken as part of the enrolment process, view any self-declared disabilities or difficulties, and create a support plan.
- As part of the sign-up, once all details have been added, your compliance team can check Additional Learning Support and decide whether funding should be claimed.
- Once learning, we provide an easy way to manage Additional Learning Support within the learner’s Learning Plan.
