Employer journey and next steps
It is important to note that every journey is different and we will work with you to personalise the right delivery for your business – however it is also good to understand the necessary milestones, so you know what to expect.
Investing in apprenticeships can be valuable for both your businesses and employees.
Investing in apprenticeships is more straightforward than you might think. If you’re a smaller employer, government funding is available to cover between 95% and 100% of apprentice training costs. Large employers can utilise their levy funds to finance apprenticeship training.
Apprenticeships are versatile and suitable for individuals of any age or skill level. You have the flexibility to bring in new talent or enhance the skills of existing employees. This approach allows you to nurture a motivated, proficient, and certified workforce.

The Apprenticeship Levy
The Apprenticeship Levy is a compulsory tax for employers with an annual salary bill of £3 million or more, used to pay for apprenticeship programmes across the UK… but not enough organisations are making the most of it. Every kind of company can – and should – take advantage of the Apprenticeship Levy. It’s funding for both fresh talent or for upskilling current employees, which in turn can transform your workforce.
Levy paying organisations (Payroll bill over £3m)
If you’re a big business already paying a 0.5% levy, you need to take advantage of the funds before they reach their expiry date (two years).
Rather than simply transferring back substantial sums to HMRC, consider a more strategic financial decision by utilising these funds to recruit a new team member or enhance the skills of your existing staff.
A budget is sitting there ready and waiting. Check your digital account online at any time to see how much you have available to put towards an apprenticeship programme.
Non-levy paying organisations (Payroll bill under £3m)
As a non-levy payer, employers share the cost of the Apprenticeship Programme and End Point Assessment with the Government – this is called Co-Investment. As of April 2019, the Government funds 95% and the employer 5%.
If you employ fewer than 50 employees, the government will pay 100% of the apprenticeship training costs up to the funding band maximum for apprentices aged:
16 to 18
19 to 24 with an education, health and care plan provided by their local authority or has been in the care of their local authority
Our apprenticeships are carefully designed to cover all essential skills, knowledge, and behaviours, all while shaping employees to align seamlessly with your specific business requirements.
