Once your contract is activated, your Development and Delivery Executive (DDE) will visit. They'll talk you through the Foundation Apprenticeship programme requirements.
Complete the paperwork
You should first familiarise yourself with the way we monitor contract compliance. Then, you can complete the mandatory Learner Registration Form and Equality Monitoring Form.
If it's relevant to your apprenticeship, you may need to sign the Work-based Learning Declaration. This can be found in our publications area and you, the learner and employer will all need to sign it.
Upload your documents
There are 2 important steps to remember when uploading a document:
- Upload the completed Learner Registration Form and the Work-based Learning Declaration document to FIPS.
- Then, enter the information only from the Equality Monitoring Form Section A into FIPS and securely discard that part. You should keep hold of Section B.
Prepare for the apprentice starting
First, you'll have to set up the apprentice with an awarding body. Their qualification includes the SQA Group Award, apprenticeship and the awarding body units.
