Levy or not?

The government has changed the way that apprenticeships are funded. If you are a large employer with a wage bill of £3m or more you will have to pay an Apprenticeship Levy of 0.5% of you payroll and this can be used to pay for apprenticeships. If your wage bill is less than £3m the government will pay 90% of the cost of the training but you will have to pay the remaining 10%.

We can help you devise a programme to ensure you make the best use of your levy pot to up-skill existing staff and recruit and train new talent. For further details on the Levy and how it will affect your business click here.

Mantra Learning is on the government's Register of Apprenticeship Training Providers.
