The apprenticeship funding rules 2019 to 2020 (version 1) were published on GOV.UK today in PDF, following feedback from the recent clarification exercise. The web based rules will be live from the 1st August, replacing the 2018 to 2019 rules.
The changes we have made are set out in the summary of changes which can be found on the apprenticeship funding rules page on GOV.UK.
Following this publication we will still work to improve the funding rules in line with your feedback. One of the rules we are reviewing is the restriction on transfers to young apprentices employed by SMEs. We will inform you should we make a change in the future.
The rules apply to all providers, employers and employers-providers receiving apprenticeship funding from the ESFA.
