IfATE launch consultation on funding band recommendations
The Institute for Apprenticeships and Technical Education (the Institute) has launched a consultation on a proposed new approach to setting funding band recommendations.
Launched on Monday 24th February, the consultation sets out a proposed core model and seeks views on two options for addressing differences in costs of teaching and consumables.
An interim impact assessment of the current model and its options accompanies the consultation. A Cost of Delivering Apprenticeship Standards report is also available to view on the Institute’s website.
The research within the report commissioned by the Institute and the ESFA was independently undertaken by IFF Research and informs the proposed model. Thus those wishing to take part in the consultation should read the report first.
The consultation closes on Monday 6th April 2020 at midday.
Please take part in the consultation, which can be saved and returned to at any point until the consultation closes. If you need any further information or support in responding to this consultation please email [email protected]
