9 Apprenticeships “Given the major change in the longer term, it as been decided not to proceed in 2013/14 AY with applying the simplified approach to setting Apprenticeships rates to existing frameworks that is being adopted for wider FE qualifications. This approach will, however, be applied for new Apprenticeship frameworks where these are developed. This will ensure that all new funding rates will in future link more transparently to the cost of the component qualifications, with account taken of the additional activities involved in Apprenticeship delivery. All other simplification changes to the system will continue to be made.” Skills Funding Statement Dec 2011
