Wednesday 31st March
From tomorrow, 1 April 2021, all employers will need to register their new apprentice on the apprenticeship service account in order to access funding. This means that all new apprenticeship must now go through the system rather than procured non-levy contracts held by training providers.
The cap on apprenticeship will also be reset to zero from tomorrow. Non-levy paying businesses can start up to 10 new apprentices from 1 April, regardless of the number they currently employ.
The Education & Skills Funding Agency will be running an “Employers: How to use the apprenticeship service” webinar. You can register for the event here.
If you require support in navigating your way onto the digital apprenticeship service or if you need more information about apprenticeship funding or recruitment, please contact our friendly team of Apprenticeship Advisers who will be happy to help.
