My ITO offers a number of programmes in which health and safety and/or regulatory compliance training is a small component. Is TEC proposing to remove funding for these programmes?
Not necessarily. The definition provides for ITOs to continue to claim funding for programmes with health and safety and/or regulatory compliance training components where the majority of enrolments lead to the completion of the whole programme. In particular, ITOs should carefully review the enrolment patterns of trainees to assess whether they meet the definition.
