Apprenticeship Levy Funds

Are you gaining the most from your Apprenticeship Levy funds?

NowSkills has been helping committed apprentice employers gain the most from their apprenticeship levy funds, by working with them to deliver challenging IT apprenticeships that equip apprentices with the skills, knowledge, attitudes and behaviours to embark on meaningful and rewarding careers

How can you gain the most from your apprenticeship levy funds?

Your Apprenticeship funds can only be used for apprenticeships that are approved for delivery by the Education and Skills Funding Agency (ESFA).  NowSkills ensures that your funds are correctly spent and only offers approved apprenticeship programs that your apprenticeship Levy funds can be used for.

What can I not spend my apprenticeship Levy funds on?

These include the following:


Travel and subsidiary costs
