If you are looking to deliver apprenticeships directly or as subcontractor, you need to be on the Register of Apprenticeship Training Providers (RoATP). There are 3 routes;
- Main Provider
- Employer Provider
- Supporting Provider
Main provider route
For providers who will directly deliver apprenticeship training for employers who use the apprenticeship service to pay for training. Providers that meet this requirement can also provide apprenticeship training to their own employees or those of connected companies and act as subcontractors for other providers. This route is also for providers who provide apprenticeship training for employers who do not pay the apprenticeship levy.
Employer provider route
This is for employers who will directly deliver training to their own employees or those of connected companies and use the apprenticeship service to pay for apprenticeship training. Providers that meet this requirement can also act as subcontractors.
Supporting provider route
This is for organisations that will enter into subcontracts with main providers and employer providers to deliver apprenticeship training. This can be up to a maximum value of £500,000 per year in total. For organisations with no history of apprenticeship delivery according to recent records we hold, this is limited to £100,000 in their first year on the register.
