Review of apprenticeship funding bands

Over the summer the Institute has been reviewing the funding bands of 31 standards. The Department for Education requested that these existing standards be reviewed to assess where they should sit in the new 30 band funding structure, which was introduced for new apprentice starts from August 2018.

30 of these standards have now been reviewed. Some standards have remained in the same funding band. The following standards will have their funding bands changed:

  • hair professional
  • aviation ground specialist
  • dental nurse
  • senior healthcare support worker
  • customer service practitioner
  • insurance practitioner
  • dual fuel smart meter installer
  • assistant accountant
  • rail engineering technician
  • paralegal
  • professional accounting taxation technician
  • engineering technician
  • maintenance and operations engineering technician
  • power network craftsperson
  • digital marketer
  • network engineer
  • chartered manager degree apprenticeship
  • team leader/supervisor
  • associate project manager
  • operations/departmental manager
  • retailer
  • hospitality team member
  • commis chef
  • digital and technology solutions professional

As part of the review of funding bands carried out by the Institute for Apprenticeships and Technical Education, the Secretary of State has approved the following changes:
