As of May 2017, Nisai will be able to provide apprenticeship training to other employers, as a sub-contractor and to our own apprentices through our inclusion on the Skills Funding Agency’s new register of apprenticeship training providers or ‘RoATP’.
The register is designed to highlight good quality apprenticeship training provisions available to employers around the UK. On their website, the Skills Funding Agency state: “The register will encourage diversity and competition in the provider market, supporting quality and employer choice… By introducing higher quality requirements for providers; we aim to improve the quality of the offer available to employers.”
In order to be included in the register, Nisai had to undergo a comprehensive application process to assess the quality and capability of the provision we would offer. Uniquely delivered online, with minimal time away from the workplace, the Nisai offer is quality assured and flexible for both the employer and the apprentice. Programmes and Projects Director, Nick Robin said: “The application process was rigorous and exacting but we’re pleased that Nisai was able to demonstrate the quality of our academic provision.”
Professor Daniel Khan OBE, Chief Executive of Nisai Skills Academy says: “This is a further major achievement for Nisai as we will now be able to work with employers to help them address their skills needs. This also provides our existing students progression routes into employment.
In the upcoming months, Nisai will be preparing to offer apprenticeships through the Nisai Virtual Academy to employers and apprentices around the UK. All of this information and more will be available by accessing the register’s website which will be available by clicking this link.
