On Friday 12 August, the Department for Education and the SFA published a number of documents on how apprenticeships will be funded in England. These included proposals for a new Register of Apprenticeship Training Providers. These proposals for the new Register would signify a change in the way subcontractors operate in the apprenticeship training market from May 2017. We support the SFA in their appeal to seek the views of subcontractors who currently deliver apprenticeship training. We would encourage all subcontractors, large and small to complete either the short or the full survey which they have compiled to gather your viewpoints.
