Apprenticeship Levy

Training and development

The Apprenticeship Levy offers a great opportunity to recruit, train and retain the best employees and graduates for your business. We can support you through your levy application and process.

What is the Apprenticeship Levy?

The Apprenticeship Levy is a levy on larger employers to fund apprenticeships and applies to both public and private sectors. If your business wage bill is over £3 million, your company will pay the Apprenticeship Levy of 0.5% of your annual wage bill. The levy is administered by the Digital Apprenticeship Service, and collected from the PAYE system.

Lancashire Levy Transfer Network (LLTN)

A consortium of Lancashire organisations, including the University of Central Lancashire, are working together to help local businesses develop their workforce and retain funding within the county as it recovers from the effects of the Covid19 pandemic. The Lancashire Levy Transfer Network (LLTN) was established is an impartial and free service that brings together and supports businesses to give and receive Apprenticeship Levy funds.

The Network will enable businesses to get the support they need to access apprenticeship training for their staff and will simplify the process of matching up businesses for mutual benefit; levy-payers do not lose their underspent funds to a central government pot and instead, the maximum amount of levy investment is retained in the Lancashire region.

For more information on how your business can benefit please visit the Lancashire Levy Transfer Network website.
