Funding an apprenticeship

You can get help from the government to pay for apprenticeship training.

The amount you get depends on whether you pay the apprenticeship levy or not. You pay the levy if you’re an employer with a pay bill over £3 million each year.

Depending on your answer to the question below, we’ll show you relevant information about government funding.

As an employer, is your pay bill more than £3 million per year?

If you're receiving a transfer of apprenticeship funds from another employer, select 'Yes'.

Depending on your answer, we'll show you relevant information about government funding.
