Can you use the apprenticeship levy for training? While it’s possible to use the apprentice levy for existing staff, it’s important to note that levy funds cannot be spent on any form of training other than apprenticeships. This is because the scheme is designed to instill the necessary skills and competencies through intensive training designed by employer trailblazer groups.
Apprenticeship levy upskilling is a great solution, around 70% of apprenticeship training delivered by Lifetime Training is to existing employees.
Apprenticeships are not only for entry-level staff, but act as a clear map for career progression. Candidates are nominated from within your company and are screened for eligibility by Lifetime against government eligibility criteria and if required, criteria set by you.
