Event Details

It's all change now for framework and standard apprenticeship starts from 1st May 2017, with new employer and provider systems and data requirements.

This conference will help data and systems (MIS) staff manage the new ILR requirements and related validation and funding reports for apprenticeship starts from May. It will also help ensure that the data in the ILR matches the data in both parts of the new digital Apprenticeship System, for providers and employers, achieving what the ESFA call the double-lock.

Very practical training with lots of materials.

So join Nick Linford, author of the Hands-on Guide to Data and Performance as well as the Complete Guide to Funding Apprenticeships, for this technical and in depth practical workshop.

10.00 Registration

10.30 Technical update on how the new apprenticeship funding formula works
Covering both levied and non-levied employers, Nick will briefly cover levy versus con-investment, negotiated price upper-limits, additional ESFA funding and key difference between frameworks and standards.

11.00 In-depth guide to completing the ILR for frameworks and standards
Covering how to complete the key ILR fields and codes, including those that are specific for from-May starts. Taking a closer look at the ILR spec and provider guide for requirements such as for the financial record, this session will give you the confidence to submit valid and credible data (particularly where an apprentice circumstance changes).

Covering how to make best use of the summary and detailed data and funding reports for apprenticeship starts from May, produced by the ESFA

Covering the new rules and evidence requirements for apprenticeships from May, including subcontracting, 20% off-the-job minumum and employer fees. We'll also look at the new audit regime working papers and getting the most out of the ESFA's Data Self-Assessment Toolkit software.
