The Why, The What & How of 2021 RoATP applications

Beginning May 2021, the phased re-application process began.  All those registered will be invited to reapply to RoATP and prove they meet a renewed list of stringent criteria.  Unfortunately, there’s no way around this. If you want to run apprenticeships training you need to be on the list.  Failure to do so could mean you’ll be unable to continue your training provision.

That’s why at Bud we’re doing everything we can to make sure this doesn’t happen.  This blog talks you through the why, the what and the how of the latest RoATP application.
