Paying the Apprenticeship Levy

Full turn-key solution maximises return on investment

If you are an employer with an annual wage bill of more than £3m then you will be paying an Apprenticeship Levy of 0.5% on payroll through PAYE.

The system is complicated and our levy consultancy will help you to understand and make best use of the funds in your Digital Apprenticeship Service online account.

We co-design and deliver large-scale bespoke Apprenticeship programmes and currently work with over 750 employer clients across England. See our Case Studies, Videos and Training Programmes.

Our highly experienced trainer assessors work alongside senior management and HR directors to upskill existing employees and train new talent in line with your business goals.

We deliver Apprenticeships training in sectors including advanced manufacturing, materials testing, aerospace, pharmaceuticals, logistics, automotive, rail and NHS.

“Skills Training UK has dovetailed with our business objectives and created bespoke training that was exactly what we asked for.”

More affordable than you think

Remember that the Government tops up your levy account by 10% and that the cost of training is spread across the full length of the Apprenticeship programme, with the final 20% paid right at the end.

If you wish to do more Apprenticeships than your levy pot can afford then the employer only pays 10% of the additional Apprenticeship cost, with the Government paying the other 90%.

There is also a £1,000 incentive for recruiting a 16-18 year-old apprentice or a 19-24 year-old apprentice with additional learning needs or an Education, Health and Care (EHC) plan.
