How Much does it cost?

If you are an employer that does not pay the apprenticeship levy, you pay just 5% towards the cost of training and assessing your apprentice.

The government will pay the rest up to the funding band maximum.

You will pay the training provider directly and agree on a payment schedule which can be over the period of the apprenticeship.

If you employ fewer than 50 employees, the government will pay 100% of the apprenticeship training costs up to the funding band maximum for apprentices aged:

  • 16 to 18
  • 19 to 24 with an education, health and care plan provided by their local authority or has been in the care of their local authority
