Changes to the Apprenticeship Levy

Apprentices

One week after the Levy was introduced, the Education and Skills Funding Agency has paused the decision over funding allocations for apprenticeship provision for non-levy-paying employers, to allow time a careful review.

The Education and Skills Funding Agency revealed on Wednesday 12 April that the recent procurement process to provide apprenticeship training had been significantly oversubscribed, due to overwhelming interest from the training provider market in the apprenticeship reforms.

ESFA has made the decision to extend existing contracts held by all current providers until the end of December 2017.  Current providers with extended contracts will be able to undertake new starts on those contracts provided they are on the Register of Apprenticeship Training Providers.
