In preparation for the launch of the apprenticeship levy on 6 April this year, we are encouraging all of our levy-paying employers to register for the online Apprenticeship Service. This is a useful tool that will enable you to manage the finances of your apprenticeship programme under the new funding rules introduced as part of the reforms, estimate any spend and recruit apprentices through Learning Unlimited and the Chesterfield College Group
Detailed guidance can be found here: https://www.gov.uk/guidance/manage-apprenticeship-funds
The Apprenticeship Service, which until recently was known as DAS (Digital Apprenticeship Service), must be used by any levy-paying employer who wishes to access funding for apprenticeships in their organisation. We highly recommend all of our levy-paying employer partners to create an account as soon as possible in order to become familiar with how the Apprenticeship Service can work for your business and workforce development plans.
If you are a levy-paying employer looking to make the best use of your apprenticeship levy, please contact our team on 0345 850 1055 or email firstname.lastname@example.org for more information.
