Event description

Description

New date, in response to demand.

ESFA compliance and auditing for apprenticeship standards is different. Common issues are starting to arise, leading to the over-claiming and under-claiming of funding.

In this one-day workshop, we'll give you a clear overview of the ESFA’s auditing processes, the broader financial assurance system for apprenticeship standards, and how you can self-assess your compliance ahead of any ESFA monitoring, and minimise clawback of funds.

The workshop, taking place on Mon, 24th February (10am – 4pm) in central 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

This workshop is for any apprenticeship providers - whether you're an establish provider, new, an HEI or employer - looking for a greater understanding of ESFA evidence requirements, auditing processes and apprenticeship funding assurance more broadly – allowing you to meet the funding rules and safeguard funding. Delegates, for example, may include senior managers, mid-level managers or operational staff.
