Funding for wales

The big changes to apprenticeships are funded by the Apprenticeship Levy and started on 6 April 2017.

What is the levy?

The apprenticeship levy will be charged at a rate of 0.5% of an employer's pay bill, paid through PAYE on a monthly basis.

The apprenticeship levy will apply to ALL EMPLOYERS IN ALL SECTORS ACROSS THE UK, there are no exemptions, even if you contribute to an existing levy.

Those with an annual pay bill of more than £3 million are liable to pay the levy, meaning less than 1.3% of UK employers will pay the levy.

Funding from the levy will go to the Welsh Government.
