As of the 6th April 2017, the way the government funds apprenticeships in England changed.
Employers with a salary bill of under £3 million a year are now required to make a 10% contribution to the cost of apprenticeship training and the government will pay the remaining 90%. You will pay the 10% directly to a provider such as Shipley College in monthly payments over the length of an apprenticeship with an agreed payment schedule. As you and the government make a payment, it is called ‘co-investment’.
For more information see Apprenticeship Levy information for Small & Medium Employers (With A Salary Bill Of Under £3m)
Employers with fewer than 50 employees can receive additional financial support- please Contact our Business Development Team who can help you with this process.
Employers operating in the UK, with a salary bill over £3 million a year, are now required to contribute to a new Apprenticeship Levy. Employers can then access funds to train existing staff as well as new apprentices.
