Apprenticeship Funding

Apprenticeships are an extremely cost-effective way to recruit new staff or upskill your team. There is a range of government funding and local authority grant schemes available, which are designed to help you train the next wave of talent or invest in your team’s professional development.

Large organisations with an annual salary bill over £3 million are required to contribute into the Apprenticeship Levy. The Apprenticeship Levy is a dedicated apprenticeship fund, which employers can use to cover the costs of apprenticeship training and assessment.

Microbusinesses and SMEs are not required to pay into the Apprenticeship Levy. Instead, the government offers a co-investment model. Under this model, the government covers 95% of the apprenticeship training and assessment costs, while the employer contributes the remaining 5%.
