The funding rate for the advanced apprenticeship framework in IT, Software, Web and Telecoms Professionals is being changed.
From 1 April 2016, the funding value will reduce for new apprenticeship starts only; those already on a programme will remain on their existing rates.
The SFA is changing the rate for the competency aims - not knowledge, English or maths aims.
The new funding rates will be available and updated accordingly, on the learning aims search on the SFA Hub.
This change affects the Level 3 qualifications in the advanced apprenticeship.
Working in the IT and telecoms industries not only calls for technical know-how but also for other skills, from business to interpersonal, and this Apprenticeship programme is designed to provide knowledge across all these aspects. Whether people are new to IT or want to up-skill, this Apprenticeship is suitable.
You can use OCR for all the components which are necessary to complete an Apprenticeship framework, including transferable skills. These can be used with our own knowledge and competence components, or alongside other industry area specialist qualifications.
