summerhouse-training-courses-gloucester Apprenticeship Levy

Currently apprenticeships are funded by the government for any business that are interested in taking on 16-18 apprenticeships or to up-skill their current workforce. This can be provided via an accredited training provider such as Summerhouse Training.

As of the 1st May 2017, the apprenticeship levy requires all employers operating in the UK, with a pay bill over £3 million each year, to make an investment in apprenticeships. The levy will be charged at a rate of 0.5% of your annual pay bill.

If an employer is not eligible for the levy and would like to train an apprentice, your business would be required to “co-invest’ 10% of the cost of the apprenticeship training and assessment and benefit from government funding to cover the remaining 90% of the cost.  If you employ 49 people or less and recruit a 16 -18 year old the government will pay 100%.

summerhouse-training-courses-gloucester A Guide To Apprenticeships

An apprenticeship is a real job with training which would allow you to earn while they learn, whilst gaining a nationally recognised qualification.

All apprenticeships will include elements of on the job and off the job training leading to industry recognised standards or qualifications.

Currently, Apprenticeships are part funded by the Government and are required to be:

  • Employed with a contract of employment.
  • Working a minimum of 30 hours a week
  • In a new or changing job role
  • Needs significant knowledge building

As of the 1st May 2017 the way the government funds apprenticeships in England has changed. Some employers will be required to contribute to a new apprenticeship levy, with changes to the funding for apprenticeship training for all employers.

Employers that are too small to pay the levy will have to pay 10 per cent of the training costs, with the remaining 90 per cent paid for by the government

Employers with fewer than 50 people working for them will not have to pay towards training costs of 16-18 year old apprentices or 19-24 year olds whom have a EHC as this will be 100 per cent met by government.
