What is the apprenticeship levy?
Don’t worry – we’re the experts, so you don’t have to be
The levy was launched to encourage employers to use apprenticeship programmes, either for new staff or to upskill an existing workforce, to help reduce the skills gaps within England. The levy applies to all businesses with wage bills of more than £3m.
The levy isn’t the only change to apprenticeships. No more are they for young people to get a foot on the ladder. Anyone in your business, from entry level to CEO, can enrol onto a relevant apprenticeship, no matter their prior attainment - as long as they can demonstrate there is a business need where additional skills and knowledge will be achieved.
It provides your business with the opportunity to do something great for the future, and we’re here to make sure you get value for your payments, without the headaches.
