Turn your apprenticeship levy into a team of experts

If your annual salary bill is upwards of £3 million, then your organisation will be paying into your levy fund. 

This fund is available to spend on apprenticeship training and assessments, empowering you to build a team of top-quality industry experts in your organisation.

Transform your levy into an enhanced CIPD-accredited training programme that will build on your apprentices' existing skills and knowledge, helping them to achieve a globally recognised CIPD qualification - the ultimate benchmark for HR and L&D.

Please keep in mind, that any funds you don’t spend on apprenticeship programmes will expire after 24 months, don't let them go to waste!
