The Apprenticeship Levy - Use it OR lose it | Skills Training UK

If you pay the Apprenticeship Levy, you need to be aware that funds expire 24 months after they enter your Digital Apprenticeship Service online account. Use our added-value levy consultancy service to fully understand and make best use of your funds.

The cost for training existing and new employees you are upskilling through Apprenticeships is spread across the length of the programme, with 20% not paid until right at the end, so Apprenticeships are much more affordable than you might think.

As a levy payer the Government will top up your account by 10% and if you exceed your monthly levy draw down then you only pay 5% of the additional cost - the Government will pay the remaining 95%.
