The Apprenticeship Levy – What it is and who pays it?
- Only 2% of employers in England will be paying the Apprenticeship Levy from April 2017. This equates to around 22,000 employers and covers circa 75% of the current workforce in England.
- 50% of the employers paying into the Apprenticeship Levy have never previously engaged in Apprenticeships before. No employers are exempt from the Apprenticeship Levy; this includes the Public Sector and the Voluntary Sector.
