Funding explained for employers

There is Government assistance available for employers who want to take on an apprentice. Generally, this is 95% of costs of training and assessment. Importantly, this is for employers who have a staff wage bill of less than £3m. So employers with a bigger wage bill must use their apprenticeship levy funds instead. Apprentices’ wages must be paid for by the employer.
