Register of Apprenticeship Training Providers: Survey 
When the Digital Apprenticeship Service is introduced in May 2017, employers will be able to choose the training they’d like their apprentices to receive from an approved training provider. The basis of this list will be the Register of Apprenticeship Training Providers (RoATP). 
On behalf of employers who do not pay the levy, the SFA will contract with RoATP providers who are successful in an additional Invitation To Tender. 
The SFA has worked closely with employers, providers and stakeholders (including UVAC and HEFCE) on the proposals for the RoATP.  SFA have published their proposals and would welcome your feedback. The link can be found hereThe survey will remain open until 5 September.
