Step-by-step guides from how to set up your Digital Apprenticeship Service to accessing funding

Taking on your first apprentice can be daunting, but it doesn’t have to be. Your training provider will help you every step of the way

There are also some great help videos that the Education and Skills Funding Agency (ESFA) have created to answer any questions you may have. Before you start to register for your Digital Apprenticeship Services (DAS) you will need the following information:

  • A valid email address – they will send you a unique code to progress to the next step.
  • The Government Gateway login details (user ID and password) for your organisation. Or your PAYE scheme reference number and Accounts Office Reference Number – your accountant will have this if you don’t
