Apprenticeship Standards

At Parenta Training, we are here to help you every step of the way with Apprenticeship Standards.

To secure funding to train your staff or even to recruit a new apprentice, you need what’s called a ‘Government Gateway Apprenticeship Account’ to be able to request funds to pay for your training requirements.

Set up your Government Gateway Account without delay!

We have created easy-to-follow steps to help you through the process.

Follow these few simple instructions to create a Government Gateway ID for your setting


  • Go to HMRC’s website here
  • Click the GREEN sign-in button
  • Click “Create sign-in details"
  • Enter your email address where asked
  • You will now be emailed a confirmation code. Use this code to confirm your email address
  • You will now be issued with a User ID for your Government Gateway account
  • Please save this and keep it somewhere safe because losing it can create a lot of work in the future

Once you receive your Government Gateway ID, please create an account to manage your apprenticeships

You’ll use your account to:

  • Get apprenticeship funding
  • Find and save apprenticeships
  • Find, save and manage training providers
  • Recruit apprentices
  • Add and manage apprenticeships

Government Incentive Scheme for employers to recruit apprentices … this has been extended!

Take advantage of the government incentive scheme of up to £3000* paid to employers who recruit new staff and place them on an apprenticeship. This means that not only do you get a cash injection into your setting; but you also help your staff to gain a qualification!

For more information, view our handy guide on Incentive payments for employers when hiring a new apprentice as well as our page on Apprenticeship funding - Levy & Non-Levy.
