Enhanced funding for completion of the apprenticeship standards is available to help cover the additional costs of apprenticeships, such as the 20% off-the-job learning time.
Funding can be claimed upon completion of the diploma within the apprenticeship and further funding is available following successful completion of the end-point assessment and achievement of the apprenticeship standard.
Adult Care Worker (level 2) – employers can claim up to £1,000 per learner. £600 for the diploma + £400 for completion of the standard.
Lead Adult Care Worker (level 3) – employers can claim up to £1,300 per learner. £800 for the diploma + £500 for completion of the standard.
Engaging with End-point Assessment Organisations (EPAO)
Employers of apprentices need to engage the services of an EPAO to deliver the end-point assessment to their apprentices. Early engagement with the EPAO significantly increases the chances of a successful outcome for the apprentice. We've created a leaflet to help employers with the process.
