After you apply for the register of approved training providers

Training providerThis article sits within the Training provider section

We start reviewing new applications on the first working day of each month. 

It usually takes 12 weeks to review an application, but sometimes it takes longer. You’ll have to wait another 12 weeks if you need to resubmit your application. 

We will let you know the outcome of your application through the messaging board and will send a notification to the email address you gave on your application.

Post-application requirements

If your application is successful, we will write to let you know what your next steps are. If you are:

  • a main provider - you’ll be contacted by our  provider management team to find out the systems you need and schedule an early monitoring visit
  • an employer provider - you’ll be contacted by our account management team

Existing main and employer providers do not need to complete the full onboarding process.

Contact for any information around onboarding.

Listed on the register

We will publish your organisation on the register after you complete the post-application requirements. You can deliver apprenticeship training once you are on the register.

If you’re a main provider, we will also publish your organisation on find an apprenticeship.

Being on the register does not mean we recommend your organisation and is not a Kitemark or an award.

Unsuccessful applications

If your application is unsuccessful, we’ll send you a message with feedback. Your application will be in ‘edit’ mode, so you can make changes before you resubmit. You do not have to resubmit the entire application.  

You can re-apply once within the 12 months following your original application. 

Appeal your application result

If you want to appeal your application result, you should  send an email to

You must submit your appeal within 10 working days of the date of receipt of your application result and feedback on your application.

We will aim to tell you the outcome of your appeal within 15 working days of us receiving your appeal.
