The deadline for bids for the Apprenticeship Application Support Fund (AASF) is now less than one week away!
The £450,000 fund which is being managed by AELP on behalf of the National Apprenticeship Service (NAS), aims to support young people who have struggled to get onto an apprenticeship through the government’s Apprenticeship Vacancy service. Training organisations are being invited to bid to run projects around the country designed to increase the quality and success rate of applications for apprenticeship vacancies made by young people between the ages of 16-20.
For further information, and to download an application form, visit the AASF webpage, where you will also be able to find a recently updated Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ) document. The deadline for receipt of completed bids is midday, 1 October 2012 and should be submitted to [email protected]. Enquiries regarding the AASF can be directed to [email protected].
