What is an Apprenticeship?
Apprenticeships are government subsidised training programmes.
It allows organisations to train new & current employees, at heavily discounted rates.
Where does the funding come from?
The Apprenticeship Levy Explained
Who pays into the Levy?
Employers in the UK with a payroll bill of greater than £3 million pay 0.5% of their payroll cost into the levy every year.

The Levy money can only be used for apprenticeships. It can be used both for up-skilling current or hiring new employees as Apprentices.

End-point Assessment (EPA)
End-point assessment (EPA) is the final stage of an apprenticeship. It is an impartial assessment of whether your apprentice has developed the skills, knowledge and behaviours outlined in the apprenticeship standard.
Assessments are designed by employers in the sector and are conducted by independent bodies known as end-point assessment organisations (EPAOs).
Once all elements of the apprenticeship are completed, the apprentice will receive their apprenticeship certificate.
