The National Apprenticeship Service is part of the Skills Funding Agency, which, in turn, is an executive agency of the Department for Business, Innovation & Skills of the UK Government
We fund skills training for further education (FE) in England. We support over 1,000 colleges, private training organisations, and employers with more than £4 billion of funding each year.
We enable our nation to generate a more highly skilled workforce. Through Apprenticeships, skills competitions and awards, which create opportunity, support
development and showcase excellence. Our endeavours enable us to:
– Transform the lives of our people.
– Stimulate growth and strengthen our economy.
– Instil pride in the skilled people of our nation
The government aims to make sure that further education provides the skilled workforce employers need and helps individuals reach their full potential
