Workshop on the IfATE Consultation on Apprenticeship Funding Bands – FOR ACTION

Workshop on the IfATE Consultation on Apprenticeship Funding Bands – FOR ACTION

The Open University, Milton Keynes, MK7 6AA (Michael Young Building) Thursday 19 March. 12.30pm Lunch and 1.00pm – 3.00pm

Please book here.

The Institute for Apprenticeship and Technical Education (IfATE) is consulting on the process for how they recommend funding bands for Apprenticeship Standards. Changes to the process could result in significantly different Funding Bands for new Apprenticeship Standards.  The process would also be used where existing standards are reviewed/revised. 

This consultation launched on Monday 24th February and closes on Monday 6th April 2020 at midday.

The aim of this FREE UVAC event, hosted by the OU, will be to explore what is proposed and support UVAC and individual HEIs produce an appropriate response to the consultation. We ask colleagues to read the consultation and supporting documentation prior to the workshop.  

The Open University has its headquarters at Walton Hall in Milton Keynes, which is 80km north of Central London, midway between Oxford and Cambridge, and just off the M1. The campus is circa 10-15 minutes from Milton Keynes Central railway station.
