The Education and Skills Funding Agency, through employers' digital accounts in the Apprenticeship Service, have paid £170 million between 6 May 2017 and the end of March 2018. We publish statistics on commitments to date on our website GOV.UK. These can be found at

Information on committed spend for future training of apprentices is not published as although there are commitments in the system in line with expected spend requirements, there are a number of reasons why these forecasts may change.
