How much does an apprenticeship cost?

The government provides funding to enable employers to take on apprentices.

The amount of government funding your organisation are eligible for will depend on whether you pay the Apprenticeship Levy or not. All employers with a pay bill over £3 million each year pay the Apprenticeship Levy. They will receive government funds to pay for apprenticeship training. The government will add 10%. Organisations that you do not pay the Apprenticeship Levy, will pay 5% towards the cost of training and assessing your apprentice.

There are additional financial incentives too for any employer who hires a new apprentice before 31st January 2022. More details can be found on our FAQ section.

For full details on apprenticeship funding & incentive payments, please check the Government's website. To register for an apprenticeship service account to access funds or pay for training, please visit the Government's website.

Support for employers

We can support your staff with the administrative aspects of running an apprenticeship or we can complete some aspects on your behalf. For example, we can support you to register as an apprenticeship employer on the government apprenticeship service portal or to complete the necessary on-boarding documentation for your apprentices.

Support for apprentices

All apprenticeships have access to specialist support throughout their programme, so they can maximise their success and enjoyment of their apprenticeship. We offer support in three main ways:

  • We offer support during the onboarding process at the start of the apprenticeship to identify any hidden learning needs. All apprentices undertake a short, online assessment on the Cognassist platform.
  • For the duration of their programme, all apprentices have access to Right Steps’ digital platform. This has self-guided wellbeing resources which provide evidence-based online support (very similar to an Employee Assistance Programme).
  • All apprentices will attend our ‘Resilient You’ Course or the ‘Resilient Manager’ course, depending on their apprenticeship programme.
