New apprenticeship service functionality allows providers to create apprenticeship cohorts for employers
Employers will soon be able to give training providers permission to create cohorts on their behalf in their apprenticeship service account, as part of on-going improvements.
Training providers will need to access the new ‘Create cohort’ area of the service to choose an employer to create a cohort for. Only employers that have given permission will be listed.
Employers who wish to give permission to their provider to create a cohort will need to discuss this with their provider offline first. When employers access the service they need to click on the ‘Add training provider’ area and add their provider’s UK Provider Reference Number (UKPRN) to complete the confirmation.
The employer will still need to approve the cohort and apprentice details before the apprentices go live.
