These documents set out the funding rules for employers, employer-providers and training providers.
The funding rules cover the period August 2018 to July 2019 and apply to all apprenticeship programmes starting on or after 1 August 2018. This includes both apprenticeship frameworks and standards.
The apprenticeship performance-management rules from the training provider rules (annexes B to D in version 6 of the 2017 to 2018 funding rules) will continue to apply as the performance-management rules run until March 2019.
We are issuing these funding rules as an initial version to give you the opportunity to provide feedback on how we can make them clearer or better understood. Please email any suggestions to email@example.com by Monday, 2 July. Following a review of any feedback, we will then issue a final version of the rules in July to reflect any areas of clarification.
