THE APPRENTICESHIP SERVICE
The Apprenticeship Service is the online digital platform, created by the Education and Skills Funding Agency (ESFA), where employers can find, fund and manage apprenticeships.
Employers of all sizes can now use the Apprenticeship Service to access funds and search for an apprenticeship that meets your business needs. This service was previously only available to levy paying employers.
The intention is that all apprenticeships will need to be managed through the Apprenticeship Service by 1st April 2021, so it’s the perfect time to transition to the new service and take on an apprentice.
