The introduction of the Apprenticeship Levy in 2017 represented one of the most significant recent changes to our sector.
We were keen to ensure that our members were supported effectively, as they adopted to this new way of working. In April, we introduced the AELP-BDB model framework agreements, which are available in levied and non-levied forms.
These model contracts are available exclusively to AELP Full Members. The suite includes a model subcontract and a model assessment organisation agreement. The follow contract models are available:
Revised levy paying employer contract with provider - mainly formatting so easier to manage but also encompassing some of the latest guidance – not significant change, but some differences
Non-levy paying employer contract with provider – similar to the above but with slightly different obligations, in particular the employer contribution, but also recognizing the funding comes from a SFA contract with the provider
Prime provider contract with sub-contractor
Provider contract with an EPA Organisation
Model contracts have so far been provided to over half of our Full Members.
