Apprenticeship Standard funding is dependant on whether an employer pays into the apprenticeship levy or not.

Large UK Employers with a pay bill of £3 million or more, pay an apprenticeship levy.

SMEs with a pay bill under £3million contribute 10% of the total apprenticeship cost and the Government pays the remaining 90%.

The Government will fund 100% of the cost of apprenticeship training for a 16-18 year old for businesses with fewer than 50 employees.


As a leading non-profit organisation we ensure that our charges are below the maximum 20% of the total apprenticeship.

When you contract us for your end point assessment you will pay a small fee upfront to secure support materials and assessment booking. The remaining balance is charged upon Gateway entry and end point assessment booking.
