Promotes continuity of education, development and training
Provides skilled workforce for the future by ensuring employees have funding to complete the full 3 year Advanced Clinical Practice Programme
Supports quality and governance by ensuring that staff continue on the right education pathway

Enables long term planning and delivery of Advanced Clinical Practice Programmes
Practices who are non-levy employers can either apply for a full levy (course cost) transfer from a levy paying employer or reserve 95% of funds government co-investment therefore only paying 5% of the total course costs.
Advanced Clinical Practice Programme will cost an employer approximately £600 over 3 years under co-investment compared to costing the Training Hub £10,500 if applied for under the modular route.
To attract government funding a 20% minimum off-the-job training threshold has been set. This is the minimum amount of time that should be spent on occupational off-the-job training during an apprenticeship. This applies to both apprenticeship frameworks and to apprenticeship standards at all levels.
