Stimulating the SME Apprenticeship and T Level

9 July 2021

The Department for Education, acting through the Education and Skills Funding Agency (ESFA), is seeking to procure outcome driven plans from intermediaries/partners and partnerships to build on the existing levels of awareness and business benefits amongst employers; and to stimulate and encourage new or renewed participation in apprenticeships and T Level Industry placements within SME landscape.

This focus on SMEs and the new starts created will increase the economic value of skills being supplied by the post 16 system; and these improved skills will lead to increased productivity, social mobility and will support economic recovery. Please see the below link for further details.

A market engagement event will be conducted via Microsoft Teams on the 15th July 2021. To access the event, please follow the eventbrite link provided within this notice where a limited number of tickets are currently available:
