Funding for employers

In order to access this funding you must first create an Apprenticeship Service Account for you organisation. Apprenticeship Services Accounts can be created on the Apprenticeship Management pages of the government website.

Once the account has been created this can be used to reserve non-levy funding for apprenticeships. Funds can be reserved up to 6 months in advance of the apprenticeship starting, to reserve the funding you will need the following details:

  1. The name of the apprenticeship standard
  2. The start date of the apprenticeship
  3. The cost of the apprenticeship training from your training provider
