Be an Apprentice

Employ an Apprentice

An apprentice can re-invigorate your workforce and improve your bottom line, whilst offering enthusiasm with the skills to have a lasting impact on your business.

Apprenticeship Levy Information

You will pay the apprenticeship levy if you're an employer with a pay bill greater than £3 million. For the purposes of the levy, an ‘employer’ is someone who is a secondary contributor.

Funding for SMEs

For companies with a pay bill of less than £3 million, the cash contribution from companies will be 5%. The Government will give employers £1,000 if they take on a 16-18 year old.
