Apprenticeship Funding

If you employ fewer than 50 employees

The Government will pay 100% of the apprenticeship training costs (up to the funding band maximum) for Apprentices aged 16 -18 and those aged 19 – 24 with an Education, Health and Care (EHC) plan provided by the local authority.

If you have more than 50 employees and your annual paybill is less than £3 million

You will pay 5% towards the cost of training and assessing your Themis Apprentice, under national Government guidelines.

For those employers with an annual paybill in excess of £3 million

The Apprenticeship Levy is in force and will be charged by the Government at a rate of 0.5% of your paybill. You will receive an allowance of £15,000 to offset against your levy payment.
