If times are tough right now with the end of the TTAF fees-free and the rising cost of living or running a business, we can help. We have personalised finance options to help you keep up your apprenticeship programme, with less stress.

Help with fees-free

The Targeted Training Apprenticeship Fund (TTAF) fees-free programme, which used to cover training costs for apprentices and employers for two years, ended 31 Dec 2022. However, there are certain fees that are still free for 2023 if you meet the criteria. Call us to chat to help understand if you’re eligible for your fees to be free.

Help with a payment plan

We have payment plan options so apprentices and employers can spread their fees out over instalments. We’re keen to do what we can to keep apprentices learning, so talk to us about staging payment options for you.
