Review the employer agreement

EmployerThis article sits within the Employer section

The employer agreement is a legal contract between your organisation and the Education and Skills Funding Agency (ESFA). You must accept and follow it to access government funding for training and assessing apprentices.

You can accept the employer agreement in your apprenticeship service account. You can also review and print your employer agreement by visiting the guidance page.

Every employer that takes on apprentices must accept an employer agreement. It is the same for all employers and includes the terms and conditions of:

  • using the apprenticeship service
  • using government funding to train and assess apprentices
  • working with the ESFA

The agreement is legally binding. If the employer breaks it, we can close their account and stop them running apprenticeships.
