The Directory of Approved Apprenticeship Providers
Nottingham City Council is undertaking an accreditation exercise for apprentice training provision. As a result of this process, The Council intends to establish a national list of approved providers called the Directory of Approved Apprenticeship Training Providers (DAAP).
We are now inviting applications from sufficiently experienced and qualified training providers. The service agreement will be established until 30th September 2019 with a possible annual extension of 2 further years, at the Authority’s discretion.
The DAAP will be used by Nottingham City Council when training requirements for apprentices arise. It will also be made available for use by public body employers wishing to train apprentices across England.
Nottingham City Councils Economic Development Team will oversee the management of The DAAP and offer a nationwide Local Apprenticeship Service to public body employers in order to support them to meet their apprentice training needs in an efficient and cost effective manner.
Funding for apprenticeships in England will be accessed by employers from central Government Funds. This includes a drawdown of funds paid by employers to HMRC in the form of an ‘Apprenticeship Levy’, and other funding available in the form of ‘Co-Investment’.
The potential contract value is estimated to be £3.5 million per region in England per annum, totalling £31.5 million across the 9 regions.
The draft service agreement and call-off contract that the Authority proposes to use is available review by potential suppliers. By submitting an application, providers are agreeing to be bound by the terms of this contract without further negotiation or amendment. Any amendments that are proposed but not agreed could be considered a non-compliant application.
