From Subcontractor to Prime

March 15 @ 11:00 am

As of April 1st 2017 the Government are introducing substantial changes to the contracting arrangements for Apprenticeships. For learners starting from May 1st onwards subcontracting as we know it will no longer exist. Many existing Subcontractors will hope to become Prime contract holders and have applied for Direct contracts. Successful applications are due to be published in March 2017.

This webinar is essential for PICS users who have not previously held an SFA contract and will be submitting ILR data for the first time. You will learn how to set up PICS for your direct contracts, enter and process the ILR and check the validation reports. You will also see how to identify direct contract learners in the funding calculator and general reports.
