Large employers who pay the Government Apprenticeship Levy can share up to 25% of their levy funding with Government accredited Apprenticeship Training Agencies like EN:Able Futures.
Any unspent Apprenticeship Levy money goes straight back to the Department for Education, money that could have gone towards covering the costs of educating the next generation of Britain’s workforce.
As a not-for-profit that doesn’t pay the Apprenticeship Levy, EN:Able Futures can only access levy funding for a maximum of ten apprentices. For all apprentices over this we must find levy paying organisations who can share some of their levy funds with us.
Julie Deeley, Director of Operations at EN:Able Futures - "The ability to share up to 25% of the Apprenticeship Levy presents a great opportunity for large Levy paying employers who want to support Apprenticeships in construction, housing and civil engineering, helping us to build a future for the many young people who choose this career path and in turn supporting the sector by providing the skilled employees it so desperately needs to support the Build Back Better growth plan as laid out by the government."
As a levy paying employer you do not need to have any apprentices working for you to be able to support one. The transfer of Levy funds means that as a large employer you can help support smaller supply-chain partners recruit and train apprentices of their own. Transferred funds can be received from Levy-paying employers by:
- Employers within the supply chain
- Employers within the same industry
- Regional partners
Sharing some of your levy with EN:Able Futures is very much appreciated and doesn't go unnoticed. We share regular news updates, photos and videos of our apprentices progress on social media so you can share the good news with your stakeholders and staff.
At EN:Able Futures we work in partnership with all types of organisations in the construction, housing and civil engineering sectors to find host companies for apprentice's who we employ directly. This means that employers get the type of apprentice they need for their business, while we ensure the apprentice gets the support they need to successfully complete their apprenticeship.
If you are a levy paying employer and would like to find out more about how you could help fund Apprenticeships in your area, or you are simply ready to share some of your levy with us to fund Apprenticeships, please contact Nicky Field, EN:Able Futures Operations Manager:
