Apprenticeship Levy

Over 2.4 million apprenticeships were created between 2010 and 2015. Apprenticeship participation now stands at a record level.

In April 2017 the way the government funds apprenticeships in England is changing. Some employers will be required to contribute to a new apprenticeship levy, and there will be changes to the funding for apprenticeship training for all employers.

The levy requires all employers operating in the UK, with a pay bill over £3 million each year, to make an investment in apprenticeships. You can benefit from this investment by training apprentices.

Could your business benefit from hiring apprentices?

Apprenticeships are aimed at those aged 16 or over and combine working with studying for a work-based qualification.

Your apprentice must:

  • Work with experienced staff
  • Learn job-specific skills
  • Study for a work-based qualification during their working week (e.g. at a college or training organisation)

Hiring a new apprentice can help foster new ideas and ways of working, and training them can be more cost-effective than hiring already skilled staff, lower your training and recruitment costs.

We have the skills, experience and understanding to make apprenticeships work for you and your business. Our apprenticeship programmes are designed around your business needs and help provide the skilled workers you need to help grow and maintain your business needs.
