The draft Apprenticeship Funding Rules for 2023/24 (1st August 2023 – 31st July 2024) are now available. Any feedback should be sent to email@example.com by 28th April 2023.
Some of the changes include:
- Policy change from active learning every 4 weeks to active learning every calendar month.
- Progress reviews must take place at least 4 times per year. These must be carried out at least every 12 weeks (unless there is an evidenced delivery reason, such as module length, to adopt an alternative frequency). Alternative frequencies must be agreed with the employer.
- Progress reviews can be virtual.
Also, there is now only one rules document, rather than having three different rules documents (for providers, employers and employer-providers).
