Elmfield Training facing administration

Elmfield Training, an apprenticeship training provider which has received over £100 million in public money, is going into administration.

A BBC Newsnight investigation discovered employees were asked to alter forms to claim funding for staff who didn’t want to do an apprenticeship.

The Skills Funding Agency is still investigating and has offered advice on different training providers: “In cases where a provider enters administration, the Agency responds by identifying potential alternative providers. If necessary, we manage the transfer of learners and employers to new providers. We also redistribute funding as effectively and efficiently as possible to ensure that learners and public funds are protected.”
