The ESFA today (20 Sept) reissued the rules that will apply to all apprenticeship provision funded by the ESFA following the introduction of the apprenticeship levy.
These documents set out the funding and performance management rules for employers, employer-providers and training providers delivering the new apprenticeship programme from 1 May 2017.
The funding rules cover the period May 2017 to March 2018 and apply to all apprenticeship programmes starting on or after 1 May 2017. This includes both apprenticeship frameworks and standards.
The funding rules form part of the terms and conditions for funding apprenticeships by the Education and Skills Funding Agency.
Employers requiring further support can contact them through their Apprenticeship Business Support team on 0800 015 0600.
