The ESFA will shortly be extending apprenticeship non-levy procured contracts to cover the 2022 to 2023 financial year. These allocations will include funding to cover the carry in costs of learners who started on or before 31 March 2020. From 1 April 2021, all new apprenticeship starts will be funded via the Apprenticeship Service. Allocation letters will be issued to training providers via Manage your education and skills funding. Contract extensions will be issued in March. Training providers must ensure they have signed the contract extension before the current contract expires on 31 March 2022. Please contact the ESFA using their online form if you have any queries.
