Apprenticeship Levy

The Apprenticeship Levy is not just for the young and for new starters, it can be used to develop the skills and capabilities of existing employees.

Unlock the Potential of the Apprenticeship Levy
If your wage bill is over £3m, you pay 0.5% into a digital account. Depending on what you haven’t already spent, you may have built up a considerable fund that you can invest. Small and medium size businesses still access Apprenticeship Levy support through the EFSA fund and “co-investment” – the fund pays 95% of the costs.

Before LI came we were a family run company and things had been done the same way for a hundred years. There was a lot of apprehension but the LI team had such a great way with people they won us over. People took to them. LI were great for our company and the systems they introduced are still in place.
