The Skills Funding Agency have outlined more definitive timelines for the Register of Apprenticeship Training Providers (RoATP). They are expecting some 4,000 tender responses to the RoATP.
The register will remain open until 1700 hours on Friday 25th November. The have also now stated that feedback will be provided to applicants on the 6th March 2017 with the RoATP published on the 7th March 2017.
It must be me, but these timelines seem rather bizarre and indeed can lead to employers and training providers being confused and impinge on planning and preparation for all involved.
