New Subcontracting Rules Now In Force

by | 0 comments

The rules for non-levy subcontracting of new starts have now changed, including those for both primes and subcontractors. Providers will be in breach of the funding rules if these are not complied with – as a reminder, para 123 of the Apprenticeship funding and performance-management rules for training providers May 2017 to March 2018 (Version 4) says that lead providers: “must directly deliver some of the apprenticeship training and/or on programme assessment associated with each employer’s apprenticeship programme……the volume of training and/or on-programme assessment that you directly deliver for each employer must have some substance and must not be a token amount to satisfy this rule. It must not be limited to a brief input at the start of each employer’s programme or involve delivery to just a few of a large number of apprentices.”
