Northumberland College are proud to have been accepted onto the Skills Funding Agency's new Register of Apprenticeship Training Providers.

The Department for Education (DfE) and the Skills Finding Agency (SFA) published the new Register of Apprenticeship Training Providers (RoATP) on the 14th March 2017. The aim of this new register is to ensure anyone taking an Apprenticeship is doing so through a quality, registered training provider. Northumberland College are pleased to announce that they are listed on this new register as a main provider.

All training organisations who have been successful in gaining access to the RoATP have been through a rigorous assessment process to make sure they meet the quality expectations required by the SFA. As part of the new Apprenticeship reforms which include the  Apprenticeship Levy employers will now choose their training delivery partner from this register for all Apprenticeships starts from May 2017.
