Information: Employers who are new to the Apprenticeship Service

From 1st April 2021 all new apprenticeships will be managed and funded using the apprenticeship service.

To support our employers who are new to the apprenticeship service there are a number of ways and resources available to support you.

What is the apprenticeship service?

All employers hiring apprentices will need to have an apprenticeship service account in order to access funding.

There is a three step registration process.

  • Users register themselves (a valid email address is required)
  • Add a PAYE scheme
  • Confirm your organisation details

When adding the PAYE scheme to your Apprenticeship Service account you will require the Government Gateway Credentials linked to your organisations PAYE scheme or access to your PAYE scheme reference number along with your Accounts Office Reference Number.

Additional resources

There are additional resources available to support you that have been published by the Education and Skills Funding Agency:
