Apprenticeship levy transfer
Transferring apprenticeship levy funds to other employers
The apprenticeship levy is already giving employers like Devon County Council a real opportunity to invest in high-quality training, helping to grow our business and get the skilled workforce we need to thrive and succeed. Through the apprenticeship levy transfer arrangements we can work in partnership with other employers, supporting them to take on new apprentices and to develop existing employees, by funding apprenticeship training and assessment.
We would like to utilise apprenticeship levy transfer arrangements to help us meet our strategic priorities, including:
- supporting local employers to boost local skills, build sustainability within the local workforce and improve economic growth
- helping to widen the supply of apprenticeship training provision, particularly in areas of need and where there are gaps in provision
- directing levy funds to meet local need and reduce the risk of losing some of our levy funds to the government
- demonstrating that we are taking an active role as a local authority and community lead in skills growth and the use of apprenticeships to support this
There is no age limit on undertaking an apprenticeship qualification! But the employer and employee do need to meet the eligibility criteria.
