  • Transferring your Apprenticeship Levy to other employers

    by User Not Found | Jul 12, 2019

    This March we hosted a webinar on the Levy transfer, explaining what is, how it affects you, and how you can implement it.

    Register to listen to the live recording. 

    In April 2018, the Education Skills and Funding Agency (ESFA)  introduced enhancements to the Digital Apprenticeship Account System. This means that Levy paying employers are now able to transfer some of their levy pot to other employers (to be spent on Apprenticeship standard training in England).

    There is a large amount of money sitting in unspent levy accounts, so businesses are able to move money from the under spent Levy world to the under resourced non-levy world.

    The webinar covers:

    • What the scheme is and what it allows
    • How it works in practice including concerns over administration
    • The benefits for donors and recipients
    • How Kaplan can help.
  • Transferring your Apprenticeship Levy to other employers

  • End Point Assessments - the new way to quality assure Apprenticeships

    by Kieron McDonnell | Jul 12, 2019

    Meet Emily and Billie, two successful apprentices at York based Accountants - Garbutt and Elliott.

    With the help of the new End Point Assessments, we see how their AAT level Apprenticeships are driving them to career success.

    The EPAs are a new addition to Finance Apprenticeships. They encourage the apprentice to reflect on their learnings and identify the new skills they've acquired, since starting their course.

    It's been really great for me because it gives a structure to my work

    - Billie Godley

    As the new Accountancy Apprenticeship standards enter their third year of operation, more students and employers are preparing to take, or have taken, an End Point Assessment.

  • End Point Assessments - what they mean for you and your apprentice

    by Kieron McDonnell | May 02, 2019

    Listen to Kaplan and our EPA partners, ACCA, CIMA, ICAEW and AAT for a series of informative and practical webinars.

    As new Accountancy Apprenticeship standards enter their third year of operation, more students and employers are preparing to take, or have taken, an End Point Assessment (EPA).

    For those following the new Level 7 programme, the first EPAs will take place in 2019 -   so it's a timely topic for many of the employers we speak to.

    The webinars explain:

    • What EPA involves for each Level, including an explanation of what methods of assessment are used
    • What 'Gateway' means and the key things you need to be prepared for when your apprentice gets to this stage
    • The logistics involved in entering for EPA, including information on how to apply and sitting timetables
    • How best to prepare your apprentice for EPA, including anticipated study leave, line manager input and tips from those who have successfully completed their assessments.

    All 4 webinars (CIMA, AAT, ACCA & ICAEW) are available to watch now.

    So that you're fully aware of everything involved in EPA, please register to playback.
