Meeting the funding rules for apprenticeships is a continually evolving challenge. Standards have brought with them new programmes, higher price points and greater complexity in the employer relationship and a significant elevation of risk.
Funding errors and the probability of inaccurately over-claiming or under-claiming are more common than you think!
In this one-day workshop, we’ll give you a clear overview of the ESFA compliance and auditing process for apprenticeship standards, how you can self-assess your compliance ahead of any ESFA monitoring, meet the funding rules and safeguard your funding.
The workshop, taking place on Weds, 27 November (10am – 4pm) in London, will take you through:
- An overview of ESFA compliance and audit processes
- What evidence ESFA auditors will want to see
- Establishing a robust evidence collection system – blending quality with compliance
- How to sample the quality of your data and reduce errors
- Common pitfalls – over-claiming and under-claiming
- Examples of effective practice and actions you can take with your staff
Who this workshop is for
