Funding an apprenticeship

The apprenticeship levy was introduced in 2017 to create long-term sustainable funding for apprenticeships, give employers more control to provide their staff with a range of training opportunities and to encourage more businesses to invest in apprenticeships.

Funding can be a difficult area to navigate but Business Skills Solutions will help you to make sense of the current funding rules and how to maximise future spending to support business growth and objectives.
