The ESFA today (10 Aug) updated the funding bands that will apply for existing apprenticeship frameworks and apprenticeship standards.

The list of apprenticeship standards shows the apprenticeship standards that have an approved assessment plan and are ready for employers and training organisations to use.

The frameworks spreadsheet sets out the funding bands that will apply for existing apprenticeship frameworks.

Apprenticeship funding band structure

When ESFA moved to 15 funding bands, they expected to see employers and providers negotiating on price below the funding band upper limit. However, this hasn’t materialised across all of the market, with many employers saying they do not feel able to negotiate with providers.

Following our consideration of the current funding band structure, we have decided to move to a new 30 band structure from August 2018 for new starts. This new structure will include more bands, with smaller increments between bands. The maximum will remain at £27 000.

We are working with the Institute for Apprenticeships (IfA) to ensure that any new standards that are approved for delivery are allocated to one of the  new 30 funding bands.

Sets out the funding bands that will apply for existing apprenticeship frameworks and apprenticeship standards.
