Employer Funding and Levy

Understanding the Levy

In April 2017, the way the Government funds apprenticeships in England has changed. Some employers will now be required to contribute to the apprenticeship levy, and there are changes to the funding for apprenticeship training for all employers. A key aim of the levy is to encourage businesses to take on apprentices or alternatively, upskill their existing staff through an apprenticeship.

At Optimum Skills our team of experts are committed to delivering bespoke advice and guidance on apprenticeships that will not only enhance your workforce but also transform your company to become a more productive and successful business. We will help you understand your levy commitment and the benefits for levy, non-levy and companies employing fewer than 50 staff.

In addition, you will be supported to plan for the effective utilisation of your levy commitments.
