Let us do the hard work

Thanks to Government reforms, the Apprenticeship marketplace has never offered so many opportunities for training providers and employers to earn funding directly to support their work…but the risks have never been greater.

The risks

With this access to direct Government funding comes the need to meet detailed – and constantly evolving – funding rules, audit requirements, Ofsted inspections and new programmes of delivery and assessment. In addition for employers, there is the further issue of the levy funds you may have, the Digital Apprenticeship Service (DAS) and other online facilities.

Heart of Worcestershire College can help.


We can design all the forms – paper and online – you’ll need to navigate the complex rules.


Data input, returns, monitoring and reconciliation – we can do it for you.

The College can help you manage your account to get the most out of your funds.

Training Provider?

Let our experience work for you. We can do all the ‘behind the scenes’ stuff.

There will be many training providers and employers where the nature and scope of their apprenticeship training programmes do not justify the financial cost – and other overheads – of having the required software, processes and staff to manage a complex Government contract and funding stream.

As an established and successful multi-campus College, we have extensive experience of managing large contracts, including those with the Government and the ESFA. We have run a very successful range of partnership models over the years (e.g. The Three Counties Consortium, The Blended Learning Consortium) and have worked with other Colleges, private training providers, the voluntary sector as well as many other stakeholders. We have an excellent reputation for genuine partnership working.

This experience, along with extensive, reliable and tested systems and processes means Heart of Worcestershire College can offer a range of ‘back office’ services that will help you ensure compliance with ESFA –  and other – contract requirements. Then you can concentrate on providing quality delivery to learners and where applicable, other employers.
