How are Apprenticeships Funded?  

Apprenticeships are funded by the UK Government and the European Social Fund

Employers that pay more than £3m in wages are liable to pay the apprenticeship levyLevy-paying employers contribute 0.5 per cent of their pay bill into a fund each month, which can be reinvested in apprenticeship training for their business.

Green Labyrinth aim to help employers capitalise on their Levy funding opportunities

Employers that pay under £3m in wages are liable to pay 5% of the Total Negotiated Price of the Apprenticeship
Green Labyrinth give employers the choice to pay this in one payment or spread over (up to 10) monthly payments
