The Education and Skills Funding Agency (ESFA) does not currently monitor or collect information on the size of employers supported by contracts awarded for apprenticeship training by these contracts.

The ESFA is currently reviewing the scope of information collected, with a view to including information about employers supported by contracts in future data collection.

The ESFA currently contracts with 713 training providers for an overall value of £562 million. Further details of these training providers is attached. These contracts run from January 2018 to March 2019, and support apprenticeship delivery for 16 to 18 year olds and adult learners.
