What exactly is the Apprenticeship Levy?

The Apprenticeship Levy, which came into effect in 2017, is applicable to all UK employers that will support the funding of apprenticeships. Both private and public companies that pay more than £3 million in wages are now liable to pay 0.5 per cent of their paybill into a fund. Employers can then use this fund – to which the government adds an extra 10 per cent (in England) – to spend on apprenticeship training.

Will all apprenticeships cost the same?

No – there are 15 different bands of funding available ranging from £1,500 to £27,000. Engineering and technology-focused apprenticeships tend to be more expensive, and in the higher bands.

Additional funding will be available to support apprentices to meet minimum requirements in maths and English.
