Five more categories added to Apprenticeship Training Providers DPS
From August 2017, a further five categories have been added to the scope of the Apprenticeship Training Providers DPS.
In April 2017 the way the government funds apprenticeships in England changed - employers with a pay bill over £3 million per annum are required to contribute to an apprenticeship levy. Since 1st May 2017, employers have been able to use their levy funds to cover the costs of apprenticeship training, assessment and certification. Public sector organisations, including the NHS, will need to comply with the Public Contract Regulations 2015 when selecting a provider/assessment organisation, as well as adhere to their own organisational Standing Financial Instructions.
The LPP Apprenticeship Training Providers Dynamic Purchasing System does exactly that, and aims to guarantee quality qualified providers nationally for all public sector organisations.
From August 2017 five more categories have been added:
1. Management undergraduate and masters degrees
2. Digital undergraduate and masters degrees
3. Registered nurse degree
4. Nursing associate
5. Events assistant.
