    Hi there,
    I have the ESFA coming next week for a Compliance visit as a new Employer Provider.
    Can anyone offer any hints/tips please? Any area I should be particularly focused on?
    Many thanks!

    Hi, We have our compliance visit next week too and have a letter detailing what they want to look at, have you received this?

    Regards,

    Received it last week, Jade, once we had our date/time confirmed.

    It’s not so bad, I’m using it more as a support visit rather than thinking of it like an inspection. They just want to know that you have in place what you said in RoATP submission (not the non-levy ITT, though would expect that to be similar).

    Regards,

    Sue

    Hi,

    We have recently received a call from the ESFA wanting to do a controlled review of our processes. Would this be the same sort of compliance visit as mentioned?

    We became a prime provider last year and this is the first communication we have had from the ESFA.

    Could someone please clarify?

    Many thanks
    Emma
