What is the apprenticeship levy?

  • The levy requires all employers within the UK, with an annual pay bill over £3 million to invest in apprenticeships.
  • This is estimated to cost £20m each year across public sector organisations in Hertfordshire.
  • The levy provides a great opportunity for us to continue developing a well-established Apprenticeship scheme creating even more opportunities for both new and current employees.



The apprenticeship levy transfer

  • We are an apprenticeship levy payer. This means we can support employers to improve the knowledge and skills of the wider Hertfordshire workforce.
  • We can transfer funds to employers for new apprenticeship starts. This can include new apprentices or existing employees undertaking an apprenticeship.
  • Take a look at our levy transfer policy and transfer request form for more information on who can receive transferred funds and how you can apply.
  • The opportunity to bid for transfer funds will be open during the months of May, August, November and February.
