Funding for apprenticeships

The Government is committed to making England’s apprenticeship programme the best in the world, and apprenticeships are undergoing significant transformation. Changes to the way government funds apprenticeships in England will come into force in Spring 2017, with the introduction of an apprenticeship levy on 6 April 2017. The levy requires all employers operating in the UK, with a pay bill over £3 million each year, to invest in apprenticeships. Further guidance on how the apprenticeship levy will work can be found here.
