Employer funding

What funding is available to an employer towards training costs?

Funding varies depending on whether your business is an Apprenticeship Levy Payer – If you are, then you can use your Levy money to fund the Apprenticeship training through your Digital Apprenticeship Service Account (DAS).

If you don’t pay the levy then you may be eligible for full funding or be asked to make a 5% contribution towards the cost of the training. For Standards you will need to reserve funding from The Apprenticeship Service through the Digital Account for further details on how to set this up please see Apprenticeship Levy Section.

The government also has an incentive payment of £1000 that you may be able to access for apprentices aged 16-18 and 19- to 24-year-olds who were in care or have an education and health care plan.

To find out more about the funding available, please visit our Apprenticeship Levy Section or contact us directly on 01254 29500 and we’ll be happy to advise you.
