Calling all apprenticeship training providers

By Lizzy Grayson, Category Manager for Corporate and People Service

With the introduction of the apprenticeship levy, the majority of UK employers want to ensure they utilise their apprenticeship fund effectively – but did you know, there’s currently very few public sector procurement solution in place to help you set up apprenticeship programmes?

 This is a huge challenge for public sector organisations as they try to purchase apprenticeship training that is compliant and good value for money.

At YPO, we’re creating a national framework solution where public sector organisations can access apprenticeship standards through a range of local and national suppliers. All current apprenticeship standards will be covered by the framework, and new standards, developed by trail-blazer groups, will be added to the framework as and when they’re released.

We’re calling out to apprenticeship providers that would like to become a supplier on our framework and deliver training to customers in their local area!

We’re also asking any local authority customers that would like to be involved in the development of the framework specification to get in touch - it’s your chance to shape the framework and ensure you get everything you need to meet your apprenticeship targets.
