Training an apprentice is a process that can last anywhere from 12 to 68 months (depending on the Standard) – both employers and training providers will need to know how much advance warning you’ll need before assessing an apprentice, and the length it will take to deliver each assessment. ESFA instructions state that you need to be given at least 3 months’ notice before reaching gateway.

Your ESFA Pipeline provides basic data about how many apprentices to expect direct from the ILR (ULN, number of apprentices and expected month for EPA). ACE360 allows you to see an Apprentice immediately from the start of a program. Our team will work with you to help your Customers upload their Apprentices onto the system, giving you increased visibility of your Apprenticeship pipeline.
