Funding backdated starts has now ended

EmployerThis article sits within the Employer section

In February 2021, we introduced a temporary, time-limited flexibility to support employers and training providers in changing their ways of working to manage all starts for apprenticeships through the Apprenticeship Service. 

When we announced this temporary flexibility, we were clear that this process was time-bound and would be available for requests until 26 April 2021. 

As this date has now passed, we will not be accepting any further requests to apply this flexibility.  All requests that were received before this date have been recorded and you will receive a response with further instructions in due course. 

If you are a smaller employer who is taking on a new apprentice, please refer to the Apprenticeship funding rules and the How to reserve funding guide in our knowledge base.
