Loughborough College has been recognized for its capability to deliver high-quality apprenticeship training with a coveted spot on a national register.
After a rigorous process with the Skills Funding Agency considering due diligence, capability, quality and financial health, the College has received approval to join the Register of Apprenticeship Training Providers (RoATP).
Loughborough College Director of Business Development, Gemma Knott said; "After a busy and successful National Apprenticeship Week 2017 which we launched with the help of Nicky Morgan MP and which saw us engage with a wide range of employers through events including a Business Breakfast Briefing and Employability Fair, we are delighted to announce our success in securing approval to join the Register of Apprenticeship Training Providers.
“This demonstrates the calibre of our training delivery and we are committed to working with employers to continue delivering top quality apprenticeships.
“We already have over 65 enrolments with new companies who will be paying the levy from 1st May and I would encourage employers to explore our offer on the digital apprenticeship service and see how we can help them."
Employers with a wage bill exceeding £3m will soon have to pay a levy towards training apprentices, which they will be able to manage through the digital apprenticeship service. Organisations not listed on the RoATP by 1 May will not be eligible to deliver apprenticeship training to employers using the apprenticeship service.
