Funding for non-levy employers

The information on this page is for employers who do have an annual payroll less than £3,000,000 . If your payroll is above this figure then you should view our apprenticeship levy page.

Every apprenticeship is slightly different: Different durations, different content and the delivery method from training providers are never quite the same. Each has a funding band, that is the maximum amount of funding available for an apprenticeship. Funding bands are subject to change.
