Apprenticeship Levy

Your choices, our support

In April 2017 the way the government funds apprenticeships in England changed. Some employers are now required to contribute to the new apprenticeship levy, and there have been changes to the funding for apprenticeship training for all employers. 

Who pays? How much? How is it collected? What can it be used for? How do I claim it back? These are just some of the questions that have been asked. We have taken the jargon out of the government announcements to explain how the levy works and what it means to you in the HIT Levy Handbook.
