Apprenticeship Funding: how will it work

Expiry or review date:
This policy will be implemented in May 2017. The apprenticeship funding policy is part of major reforms to the apprenticeships programme. It will be reviewed on a continual basis to ensure it supports growth in quality apprenticeships and opportunities for all in an affordable and sustainable way, which delivers value for money for the taxpayer. It will be considered alongside the government’s social mobility and industrial strategies, and may be adapted in future to deliver these priorities. Who is this publication for? This publication provides information on proposals for apprenticeship funding in England from May 2017. It is for: • Employers with a workforce in England. • Training providers who provide training for English apprenticeships.
