Hiring an Apprentice

What are the costs of training an Apprentice?

The Government introduced the Apprenticeship Levy in April 2017. This funding reform is aimed at supporting the achievement of the Government's target of three million Apprenticeship starts by 2020. The cost to employers is dependent on whether they are a Levy or Non-Levy Payer - please see the Apprenticeship Levy section for details.
