There is an important change to regulation that now requires you to be on the government’s apprenticeships register (RoATP) which requires all those who contribute to delivery delivering the programmes to be listed on it.
The only way to secure the quality of many of the Apprenticeships we offer our staff is to ensure we are part of the delivery process. You can be paid for your part in delivery from the Apprenticeship funding however you need to be registered.
From 12 December the RoATP re opens indefinitely and you will need to be on it if you wish to be paid for your part in Apprenticeship delivery.
The new register requirements are summarised below:
- All organisations delivering apprenticeship training must be on the RoATP.
- By August 2019, it will be a funding rule requirement for all subcontractors delivering apprenticeship training to be listed on the RoATP including those delivering less than £100k a year as a subcontractor.
- Main providers and employer providers must directly deliver apprenticeship training. Employers and providers that only want to operate as a subcontractor will need to apply to become a supporting provider.
- Providers not currently listed on the RoATP and want to be an apprenticeship training provider may apply when the RoATP re-opens for applications from 12 December 2018.
- As the register is now open throughout the year, with no closing date, providers only need to apply at the point they are ready to deliver.
- All providers currently on the RoATP will have to go through the new process; we will invite them to re-apply in phases during 2019.
- Supporting providers (subcontractors) can only receive funding of up to a maximum of £500,000 per year, and this is limited to £100,000 in their first year if they have no recent history of apprenticeship delivery.
