ESFA: 2019 to 2020 non-levy apprenticeships

The ESFA are extending apprenticeship non-levy contracts for 12 months (from 1 April 2019 to 31 March 2020). They will confirm your allocation in late February 2019. Your allocation will be based on your delivery to November (R04) plus a forecast of your delivery until the end of March.

The ESFA do not anticipate awarding growth during the extension period unless significant additional budget becomes available. They will also stop funding over-delivery. These are changes from current arrangements. The ESFA will set out more information in your allocation letter.
