The Targeted Training and Apprenticeship Fund (TTAF) provides free training for apprenticeships and targeted traineeships from 01 July 2020 to December 2022. Competenz can now reimburse you directly for training costs you pay to your Competenz-registered training provider for eligible programmes.

Am I eligible?

You are eligible to claim reimbursement of your provider’s invoice for a Competenz learner directly from us if:

  • Your employee is enrolled in a Competenz training agreement for a TTAF eligible programme.
  • Your provider invoices you for the training and assessing of an eligible programme and you pay their invoice directly.
