Apprenticeship Levy Fund
Are you a small to medium-sized enterprise (SME) thinking about taking on an apprentice but not sure if you can afford the training costs?
We can help you. Over 2,000 apprentices have benefited from the Apprenticeship Levy Transfer Fund set up by the West Midlands Combined Authority, in which large employers pledge their unspent levy to SMEs in the West Midlands.
This means SMEs that don’t currently pay the Apprenticeship Levy could be getting help with funding to train apprentices for their organisation.
If you’re working at a bigger organisation – those with a payroll over £3m who contribute to the Apprenticeship Levy – then we want to help you too. We know that countless millions of pounds raised by the Apprenticeship Levy are currently going unspent in the West Midlands, and we can help your company make best use of this funding for the benefit of local people.
If you are an SME within the West Midlands interested in getting the most out of the potential £40m apprenticeship pot, please register your details. We will be in touch to discuss how your business could benefit.
If you are a large employer that is interested in finding out more about transferring your unspent levy to SMEs in the West Midlands, please complete our form.
