Register of Apprenticeship Training Providers (RoATP) – Application Service
SDN loves to help high-quality organisations tell their apprenticeship story successfully.
SDN offers a RoATP Application Service to training providers and employers that want expert, thorough guidance on their RoATP application before submitting to the ESFA.
Whether you’re a current provider who has been invited to apply, or an organisation looking to get on the RoATP register for the first time – the SDN team, lead by former ESFA senior managers, can critique your application or provide a more bespoke service.
We get to understand how you deliver, before helping you tell your apprenticeship story in the right light.
How SDN’s RoATP Application Service works:
We get to know you and your business
Identify any gaps or areas for development or improvement
Support you to draft your application
Support the development or review of your policies and procedures
Step you through the application process in a structured and supportive way
We don’t believe in standardised templates for applications – we offer a bespoke service.
Why use SDN’s RoATP Application Service?
Knowledgeable Karen Kelly and Anna Sutton lead our RoATP Application Service,supported by SDN’s wider team of Associates, who provide specialist advice when needed. Both are former senior managers at the ESFA, and have an unrivalled understanding of the RoATP process and what the ESFA is looking for.
Honest We provide an honest service. If we think you’re not ready, we’ll tell you. We’re not here to make a quick buck, we want to make sure organisations that are fantastic at delivering apprenticeships are on the Register and ready to deliver their service. (We can also help you prepare for Ofsted or ESFA compliance – contact us for details)
We get to know you, understand what is unique about your organisation and help you put together a thorough application. Any policies or documents we create are not from generic RoATP application templates but based on the exact information you’ve told us.

Providers who want to get ahead of the game, ready to reapply to the Register
