New Apprenticeship Funding System - Documents Issued w/b 24/10/16

 Main new points are:

  • Levy funding in an employer’s DAS account will now expire in 24 months as opposed to original proposal of 18 months.
  • Whilst there will be no differential in the core funding for 16-18 year olds, providers will now receive an additional payment equivalent to 20% of the maximum funding band cap for frameworks only. This will be on top of the previously announced £1k employer incentive and £1k payment to the provider . (NB – this also applies to 19+ learners have EHCs or who are care leavers.)
  • Current levels of disadvantage funding have been retained, albeit under a revised and “simplified” system – but again for frameworks only, and for one year only pending a review. 

Clarifications:
 

  • English and maths delivery will be paid directly to the provider by the SFA at a rate of £471 for each item up to Level 2 and will not be funded through the employer’s DAS account or via the non-levy paying employer contribution. However, if an Apprenticeship requires a higher level of English and maths then this becomes subject to a price negotiation with the employer, and will be funded by the employer from their DAS account or as part of their co-investment contribution as appropriate.
  • The end-point assessment organisation (EPAO) is to be contracted by the provider, not the employer – but the employer must approve them and indeed any other subcontracted delivery organisations.
  • The EPAO has to be selected before the Apprenticeship starts – which will give some issues where standards do not yet have EPAO’s approved to deliver.
  • Negotiated prices with an employer must include the potential price of any retakes of exams or end-point assessments that might be required. 

The Register
 

  • The Register will open four times a year for new applications, and will refreshed annually.
  • Prime providers must directly deliver some element of any standard or framework but there is no fixed percentage set any longer.
  • Organisations that only deliver subcontracted delivery (i.e. are not a lead provider in their own right) will not have to apply to the Register if the aggregated value of their delivery is less than £100,000 pa. This resolves a lot of potential issues about the role of small subcontracting organisations and freelance staff.
  • Parent company guarantees will now be accepted as part of financial due diligence.
