Getting on the Register
If you are looking to get on the government’s Register of Apprenticeship Training Providers or the Register of End-Point Assessment Organisations, we can help. Here are some options:
Review – We’ll set up a call to understand your business. Send us your application and we’ll review and provide feedback and comments before you submit it.
Develop – We’ll come in and conduct a full-day review to help you develop a clear action plan. We’ll also remotely review your application to the Register and feedback comments before you submit it.
Grow – We can provide tailored, intensive longer-term support, helping you to develop a clear strategy and action plan, support your application to the Register, and support your teams to set-up and start delivering apprenticeship training.
“I would highly recommend the services of SDN in supporting a proposal to join the Register of Apprenticeship Training Providers. They added a huge amount of knowledge and experience in our application process and was instrumental in ensuring we were successful with our application.” (GUY HELMEN, IMPACT FUTURE)
“SDN have been very supportive throughout the tender process. They developed an excellent grasp of our organisation and used that to support us in covering all aspects of the tender. Their knowledge of the sector is very current and thorough. We received the highest possible mark from the ESFA, which displays how professional and effective their support was.” (BIANCA CATTEN, CATTEN COLLEGE)
Our team are leading experts in apprenticeships – many held senior positions in the Education and Skills Funding Agency and have an unrivalled knowledge of the system
SDN has worked with over 80 of the trailblazer employer groups to develop the new apprenticeship standards and assessment plans
We’ve worked with employers across the country to make best use of their levy, and supporting them to become employer-providers
We’ve worked closely with the DfE to support over 3,000 staff at all levels, from 900 organisations, to prepare to deliver apprenticeship standards and end-point assessment
