Talk training are pleased to announce that from 1st August 2017 funding restrictions for Level 2 and Level 3 qualifications have been removed (please see below a summary of the correspondence received from Welsh Government).

Dear Provider

Further to your recent 2017/18 WBL Contract Allocation offer, I am writing to confirm that, in the spirit of creating a more ‘Prosperous and Secure’ Wales, the length of employment restriction will be removed for all new starts on or after 1 August 2017.

That is, learners aged 20+ wishing to undertake a Level 2 or Level 3 apprenticeship programme may be eligible for the programme irrespective of the length of time they have been in their current job role.

However, we trust that providers will ensure that all apprenticeship programmes offer value to both the employer and the employee. The Welsh Government has a commitment to create a minimum of 100,000 quality apprenticeships over the current term of office and we all have a role to play in ensuring that this happens.

If you have any questions regarding this announcement please do not hesitate to contact the Talk training Sales Team on 01443 848300 or leave a message through our website mail facility and we will get back to you.
