APPRENTICESHIP FUNDING FOR SMEs

If your business has a wage bill of less than £3million you are not required to pay the apprenticeship levy. You are required to co-invest by contributing 5% of the total apprenticeship cost. The Government pays the remaining 95%.

If you are a business with less than 50 employees and you’re employing an apprentice aged 16-18, then the apprenticeship training is fully funded by the Government. If you recruit or upskill an existing employee aged 19+ then you co-invest 5%.

USING THE APPRENTICESHIP SERVICE

The Apprenticeship Service is designed to help employers access new apprenticeship standards, training providers and funding for apprenticeships through an online service account.

It puts employers in control and allows you to access funding for apprenticeship training. It also allows you to choose the type of apprenticeships you want to run, the number of apprenticeships you take on, and the training provider that suits your needs.
