Apprenticeship Funding

How does Apprenticeship funding work?Apprenticeship Funding

Your annual payroll bill will determine how much you, as an employer are required to contribute towards Apprenticeship training costs.


If you have a payroll bill of over £3 million, you will have to fund the Apprenticeship training costs by paying the Apprenticeship Levy. You can use us directly through the Apprenticeship Service!

Apprenticeship training costs are paid through your Apprenticeship Service digital account.

If you have a payroll bill of under £3 million, you will have to contribute 10% of the Apprenticeship training costs, while the Government pays the remaining 90%.

If you have less than 50 employees and, your Apprentice is aged 16-18, as well as having a payroll of under £3 million, the Government will pay 100% of the Apprenticeship training costs.
