Apprenticeship Accountability Framework

        The ESFA has launched a new and complex approach to apprenticeship intervention, no longer just relying on an Ofsted or relatively low achievement rates. The Accountability Framework is a basket of 10 ‘indicators’, determined primarily by calculations applied to the provider ILR data.

        So, the data that providers submit to the ESFA will determine, based on these new ‘indicators’, whether the ESFA makes an intervention – which could include contract termination.

        In this webinar, Nick will unpack and unpick the Accountability Framework and the data and calculations that determine the 10 indicators.

        To stay out of intervention, you need to understand how the Framework applies calculations to your data. Protect yourself and your reputation!

        It’s very practical training with lots of worked examples (for training providers, colleges, HEIs and employer providers).

        So join Nick Linford, author of the Complete Guide to Funding Apprenticeships and director of Apprenticeship Data Insights, for this technical and in depth workshop.
