The Digital Apprenticeship Service is designed as a web platform which provides a total end-to-end service. In the first instance, it will only be available to levy-paying employers with non-levy paying employers being able to access it by 2020.
Levy payers need to register in February 2017 using their Government Gateway ID and PAYE details. You may also need your Companies’ House or Charity number.
What will it include?
Find An Apprenticeship – a list of available apprenticeships
A search function for Standards and Frameworks
A Register of Training Providers (RoTP) and Register of Apprenticeship Assessment Organisations
Recruit An Apprentice – tool for advertising vacancies and processing applications
Registration as an employer
Access to levy funds including setting the price, paying for apprenticeship training and assessment and stopping or pausing payments.
