Creating an apprenticeship service account

Setting up your account

To get your apprenticeship service account up and running, follow these simple steps:

  1. Create a user account using your name and a valid email address.
  2. Add a Pay as You Earn (PAYE) scheme on behalf of your organisation.
  3. Confirm your organisational details.
  4. Accept the employer agreement with the Education and Skills Funding Agency (ESFA).

Once your account is set up, you'll be able to create apprenticeship vacancies and reserve apprenticeship funding. 

What information do you need to create an account?

  • A valid email address.
  • To add a PAYE scheme, you will need either your Government Gateway credentials, or your PAYE scheme reference number and your accounts office reference number.
  • If we're unable to match your organisation or you need to amend details, you could use your companies house number, your charity number or your public body name.
