Disabled student and credits only ESA claim question

Cl is a disabled 19 year old who turns 20 next month. He is in FT non-advanced education in life skills. His appointee has started a credits only ESA claim for him as per the advice in the Contact.org. factsheet:

Universal Credit for young people receiving education

When he turns 20 and ceases to be a qualifying young person he can make a UC claim. It would seem that he should not be treated as ‘receiving education’ and so the UC claim should be accepted.
Assuming the credits-only ESA claim stands and a WCA is carried out for ESA, when would the LCWRA element (if awarded) be included in the UC claim from? Would it be the AP following the start of the 14th week of the ESA credits-only claim?
