Subcontracting Summit 2022

        Register here

        The ESFA has made changes to the subcontracting rules for 16-19, AEB and apprenticeship and, in recent weeks, published for the first time a ‘subcontracting standard’. This annual update event will provide an invaluable opportunity to hear the key apprenticeship and FE subcontracting changes, implications, and best practices from experts in funding, contracting, inspection and audit.

        Miss this and miss out!

        Note: Like the ‘subcontracting standard’, the event will cover 16-19 Study Programmes, national AEB and apprenticeship subcontracting

        Comments from past attendees:

        Laura Lewis-Davies, Apprenticeship & Training Programmes Manager at the V&A, said: “The event was incredibly useful. The facilitators were clearly experts in their respective fields and delivered the content with no-nonsense clarity – a refreshing approach to policy!”
