To support members with their RoATP review, planning and application, the slides from the webcast on 18th December are now available form the member’s area HERE. The link to the webcast is in the last slide.
In addition to these resources, we have also provided a proforma template for the narrative sections which includes the guidance from the main ESFA guidance document, plus a list of attachments, policies and processes needed, again alongside the guidance on their scope.
The webinar and downloadable resources make the assumption that you are funded via OfS, so are exempt from Financial Health and the Apprentice Welfare sections of the application. If this is not the case let me know and I will update the resources.
If you if you have any questions about the RoATP , you can direct these to the ESFA via the BRAVO portal. Any wider questions pleas email me at email@example.com
TO NOTE : the application form repeats same/similar questions in section 1.13, 1.14 and 1.15, and which of these you complete seems to be dependent on your responses to PR 1-4, so work carefully through the links between these sections. Working this out finally means that the number of narrative questions reduces to about 11.
If you’d like to understand more about the new RoATP, we are running an updated version of this week’s webinar on January 10th at 9.30 am and Members can register HERE.
As and when Members are called to apply during 2019, we will run an application webinar session reflecting the latest information and forms. We will announcements these sessions on our website as soon as the timetable is clear.
