We are a private training provider and non-levy employer. We do not have an ESFA contract for non-levy provision, so now that small employers like ourselves can reserve funds on the DAS we will be doing that so that we can take on our own apprentice. We plan to deliver the training ourselves too, but what are the implications of us delivering to our own apprentice with this new system? Are we now classed as en employer provider? But we don’t have an ESFA contract?
The rules are the same except for the Training Cost that is limited to actual cost, the only other requirement is that you will need to use the LDM code 356 for Apprenticeship being delivered to own employees as this code is used to identify apprenticeship programmes on Funding model 36 that are being delivered by an employer to their own employees, and so do not require co-investment payments to be recorded on the ILR.
