The Apprenticeship funding web page every school needs to visit
The change of pace around the recent apprenticeship levy has meant schools we’ve spoken to have often found it difficult to keep up. On our visits to schools throughout the Midlands, we’ve been sharing a really helpful online tool that’s helped answer a lot of questions.
The Funding Apprenticeships System (FAS) (http://www.fas.report) is a free tool for schools to plan apprenticeship delivery and forecast funding for starts from May 2017. At a basic level, it mirrors the Skills Funding Agency calculator. However, it enriches the experience, by allowing users to input negotiated rates, set durations, forecast employer and provider incentives as well as emailing a PDF report of the results.
We have been using the FAS tool and have found it really useful. It’s user-friendly and has allowed us to show many different combinations at once to schools we’ve met. We hope you find the FAS tool useful over the coming months.
