Apprenticeship Funding for non-Levy payers

Most employers don’t pay the Apprenticeship Levy as their pay bill is less than £3m. They still have to make a contribution towards the cost of Apprenticeship training and assessment, although there are instances when they can have 100% of costs covered. The total contribution that a non-Levy paying employer would make for a tpm-delivered Apprenticeship would range between £340 to £520.

Non-Levy payers: key facts to remember

Non-levy payers contribute 10% of the cost of Apprenticeship training and assessment for staff aged 19 and over

Employers with less than 50 employees who recruit a 16 to 18 year old apprentice will have 100% costs of Apprenticeship training and assessment paid for by the Government.

The Government will pay employers an extra £1000 for every 16 to 18 year old apprentice they recruit.

The Government will pay an additional £1000 to an employer for every 19-24 year old apprentice they recruit who is leaving care or who has a Local Authority Education, Health and Care plan.
