How much does the apprenticeship cost?
You can get help from the government to pay for apprenticeship training. The amount you get depends on whether you pay the apprenticeship levy or not. You could be eligible for extra funding depending on both your and your apprentice’s circumstances.
You can use your Apprentice Levy funding towards the cost of this apprenticeship. You pay the levy if you’re an employer with a pay bill over £3 million each year.
If you do not need to pay the levy, you pay 5% towards the cost of training and assessing your apprentice. For this apprenticeship, this is £225.
Additionally, there are also incentive payments for employers who hire a new apprentice between 1 August 2020 and 30 September 2021.
