Under the Government’s Apprenticeship Reforms of 2017,  employers have to make a contribution to the cost of training . We’ll discuss and agree this before carrying out an Initial Assessment with each individual learner, which could lead to enrolment if this qualification is appropriate.

The Skills Funding Agency is a Co-Financing Organisation with a programme to tackle worklessness and workplace skills issues. To be able to draw down the ESF funds for projects, the skills funding agency needs to be able to fund an equal amount of similar activity from its other budgets – this is known as match funding. Your Apprenticeship may be match funded.
