6 July 2017
A new procurement for services to non-levy paying employers will be launched at the end of July 2017. When we launch the procurement, we will set out how much funding we are making available to cover the period from January 2018 to April 2019 – the date by which we aim to bring all employers onto the apprenticeship service.
Decisions on future years’ funding will be made on the basis of ongoing monitoring of employer demand, performance and budgets.
