IfA Announce Latest Apprenticeship Funding Results.

A spokesperson for the Institute for Apprenticeships said:

“The Secretary of State has approved our funding band recommendations for 10 of the 30 standards that have been under review since December 2018 and one funding band recommendation from the first round of reviews, May 2018. These have now been updated on our website.

“The aim of the reviews is to ensure these standards have the most appropriate funding band to support high quality delivery, and provide value for money for employers and taxpayers. They will also ensure consistency in the way older and newer standards are funded.”

In May 2018, the Minister for Apprenticeships and Skills asked the Institute to carry out an initial review of the funding bands for 31 existing apprenticeships standards. The results of this first review were announced in summer 2018.

In December 2018, the Minister asked the Institute to carry out a second review of funding bands for a further 30 existing standards.

The Institute has used the same funding review process for both reviews, in order to ensure consistency of approach, and as part of this process we have worked collaboratively with Trailblazer groups to carry out the reviews and collate evidence in a fair and balanced way.  Each standard was considered on its own merits following this approach.

The Motor Vehicle Service and Maintenance Technician (Light Vehicle) is the standard from the May 2018 review that has now been updated.

A further 20 funding band recommendations still have to be approved from the December 2018 round of reviews.

Review of apprenticeship funding bands

Over the summer the Institute has been reviewing the funding bands of 31 standards. The Department for Education requested that these existing standards be reviewed to assess where they should sit in the new 30 band funding structure, which was introduced for new apprentice starts from August 2018.

  • hair professional
  • aviation ground specialist
  • dental nurse
  • senior healthcare support worker
  • customer service practitioner
  • insurance practitioner
  • dual fuel smart meter installer
  • assistant accountant
  • rail engineering technician

  • network engineer
  • chartered manager degree apprenticeship
  • team leader/supervisor
