It is anticipated that the Register of Apprenticeship Training Providers (RoATP) will be re-opening over the coming weeks. You may currently hold a place on the register or be interested in applying to join, but whatever the level of support your company may need, Carley Consult can provide a solution to support your application.
Previous questions focused on safeguarding, leadership management, staffing, delivery of apprenticeships and quality. We anticipate that the threshold to be successful may be more difficult to achieve than previous rounds, with more questions and more challenging scoring criteria.
To receive information about the refresh as soon as it is made available, sign up to our newsletters and information centre here.

Frequently asked questions
We have helped 33 organisations produce applications to join the RoATP, most of which were not Ofsted inspected and many of which had no track record of providing apprenticeship training prior to making their applications. Subsequently we have helped 40 organisations secure over £30m of funding to provide apprenticeship training to non-levy paying employers.
32 of the 33 organisations we have worked with have been accepted on to the RoATP.
Yes, we are flexible and happy to provide an end to end service or a review and improve service, based on your preference.
It depends on the service you require i.e. full application or review and improve. We typically work on a day-rate of £75+VAT per hour, but are happy to work to a fixed price once we have agreed the scope of service we are providing.
We would advise starting as early as possible, as the questions are unlikely to change and by completing an application you may realise there are a few minor changes you need to make to how you operate.
As part of our ISO9001 quality process we employ an independent consultant to conduct client satisfaction surveys for each assignment we deliver. We are comfortable sharing some of this feedback at this stage, and if you decide that you wish to commission us to produce your application we would be happy to provide customer contacts for a reference before you commit.
Read the RoATP application questions, decide how you can demonstrate your compliance and collect evidence to support your case. Pay attention to mandatory requirements e.g. ICO registration, and complete the financial health check to ensure you will pass that based on your most recent financial statements.
