IfATE update – Exceptional funding band reviews for apprenticeships

19 January, 2023

The Institute for Apprenticeships and Technical Education (IfATE) have launched a set of exceptional funding band reviews for 20 high-volume apprenticeships in skills shortage occupations and priority sectors and will conclude by April 2023.

These 20 apprenticeships have been chosen by Department for Education (DfE) following consultation with provider representative bodies.

“IfATE funding band reviews identify our best estimate of the typical cost of training and assessment. This can mean the funding band can go up, stay the same, or go down. It is envisaged that any funding band increases made by this exceptional funding band review process will be limited to an increase of one funding band only. “ IfATE
