Apprenticeship Levy

In April 2017 the way the government funds apprenticeships in England changed. Some employers are now required to contribute to a new apprenticeship levy and there are changes to the funding for apprenticeship training for all employers.

Who pays? How much? How is it collected? These are just some of the questions being asked. We have taken the jargon out of the government announcements to explain how the levy works and what it means to you in our Levy Guide to Employers leaflets. Click on the relevant button below for more information.

Employers with 49 or fewer employees with an annual wage bill below £3 million

Employers with 50 or more employees and an annual wage bill below £3 million

Employers who have an annual wage bill of £3 million or more

There has never been a better time to employ an apprentice.

Its aim is to create an extra 200,000 apprentices by 2020 and forming a key part of plans to deliver 3 million new apprenticeships over the next five years.
