BMA Guidance: Apprenticeships in England (August 2018)

 

In April 2017, the Government introduced an apprenticeship levy on all employers in England to encourage the employment of apprentices. The money gathered by the levy can be accessed by employers, including NHS Trusts and GP Practices in England, to help assist with the employment of apprentices by covering training and assessment costs. While only larger employers (those with a pay bill over 3 million) will be required to pay the levy, all employers, regardless of size, will be able to benefit from the fund.

Apprenticeship policy is devolved, so each nation manages their own apprenticeship programme. This guidance looks at what funding is currently available for employers in England only and explains how the apprenticeship levy works.
