The Apprenticeship Levy

Support from Workpays

What is the Apprenticeship Levy?

Workpays supports employers with the Apprenticeship Levy, providing bespoke training programmes to upskill new and existing staff, with a delivery model that suits the needs of the employer.     

Here’s a quick summary to help you to understand the key points:

  • The Apprenticeship Levy requires all employers operating in the UK, with a payroll exceeding £3 million each year, to make an investment in Apprenticeships. This is calculated at 0.5% of their annual payroll.

  • Public sector organisations are also required to pay the Apprenticeship Levy if their payroll meets the same criteria. Also, a total of 2.32% of their workforce must be Apprentices.

  • The government has set a target of three million Apprenticeships by 2020 and the purpose of the Levy is to improve the quality and quantity of Apprenticeships in England to meet this target.

  • A further objective of the Levy is to provide a sustainable workforce and bridge the skills gap affecting many industries.
