The Apprenticeship Levy is one of the most significant changes to apprenticeship funding and talent development for UK manufacturing in recent memory. EEF, the manufacturers’ organisation, trains hundreds of apprentices at its Technology Hub in Aston. We also support employers in managing their DAS accounts and Levy submissions as well as ensuring they get the most out of their digital funds.
One of the common questions our Levy experts receive is how much funding they can expect from their Levy payments. A useful tool to use as a starting point is the government’s Apprenticeship Levy calculator, found on the BIS website.
However, this is just a preliminary calculation. The Levy is a complicated system that can work for manufacturers to help fill their skills gap, when applied correctly. To find out more about how you can make the Levy work for you, get in touch with our team.
