  • Apprenticeships are employer and government creation led work based programmes designed for industry specific roles.
  • They are available for candidates aged 16 and over, with no restrictions on the upper limit.
  • They incorporate qualifications from Level 2 (GCSE equivalent) to Level 7 (Masters equivalent).
  • Apprentices can be new recruits or existing employees, but must be employed within a suitable job role for a minimum of 30 hours per week.

Overview of apprenticeship levy

Employers will have an allowance of £15,000 to offset against their levy.

Any organisation paying in to the levy will need to utilise apprenticeships for existing employees or new recruits to make use of their levy.

Levy is paid monthly via PAYE – Government will provide a 10% top up on a monthly basis.

Levy can only be used to fund apprenticeship training and assessment with an approved training provider and assessment provider.

Funds expire 24 months after they enter the levy digital account. If you don’t use it, you will lose it.

Overview of non levy

Any organisation with a payroll bill of less than £3 million will receive a 90% government contribution to the cost of the apprenticeship programme.
