Apprenticeship training

If you're ready to start using apprenticeships in your business and get a return on your levy investment, it's time to look at training options and start experiencing the benefits that the new standards offer.

The training is not prescribed in the new standards, so you can choose in-house or external programmes, and you can either use an external training provider or your in-house team to deliver the training.

If you choose to deliver the training in-house, you’ll need to register your business as a provider on the register of apprenticeship training providers. A guide is available here to walk you through the process.

If you plan to use an external training provider, you’ll need to identify the one that best meets your needs. You should also check your chosen provider is on the register of apprenticeship training providers to be confident that they have the capacity and capability to deliver good quality apprenticeships. You’ll be able to find registered providers through the apprenticeship service (commonly know as the Digital Apprenticeship Service or DAS during its development), which is now open for registration for levy paying employers.
