A new tool, designed to help employers find apprenticeship training, has been launched by the Skills Funding Agency (SFA).

The online tool has information on over 16,000 apprenticeships, together with details about training providers and the qualifications they can deliver. Reportedly, approximately 400 employers and 200 training providers have already tested the system.

The website allows employers to search for apprenticeship training by job role or keyword, as well as by postcode, though the latter option does not appear to have been implemented yet.

“The new tool launched by the SFA to help employers find apprenticeship training will help our members and subsequently make it easier for them to offer apprenticeships,” said Ross Anderson, director at the Industrial & Commercial Energy Association.

“As an industry we need to attract potential employees and this includes apprentices. The SFA online tool will provide our members with up to date instant access to information about apprenticeships on offer, at approved training organisations.”

The tool can be found by visiting findapprenticeshiptraining.sfa.bis.gov.uk.
