  1. The apprenticeship levy was implemented on 6th April 2017, to support the Government’s commitment to improving productivity by increasing the quantity and quality of apprenticeships and their commitment of 3 million apprentices by 2020
  2. All UK employers in the public and private sector with a pay bill of £3 million have to pay 0.5% on their annual pay bill into their levy fund
  3. From April 2019, the Government implemented two changes to the apprenticeship levy:
    • They increased the amount Levy payers can transfer of the unused levy fund to non-levy paying companies from 10% to 25%, which can be used to pay for training and assessment of new starters
    • They decreased the contribution non-levy payers have to pay for apprenticeships standards from 10% to 5%
  4. The Government will waive the co-investment requirement if you employ less than 50 employees and the apprentice is 16-18 years old or an eligible 19-24 year old (formerly in care or have an education and health care plan)
  5. If you recruit a 16-18 year old apprentice you will also receive a £1,000 incentive payment.  Paid in two halves at 3 and 12 months
  6. Apprenticeship are open to everyone, whether you are a school leaver, improving your current skill set or looking to retrain and start a new career
