The good news, as a smaller company, you are exempt from the apprenticeship levy.
So how do I apply for apprenticeship funding?
You may reserve apprenticeship assistance for planning and assessment in the finance section of the apprenticeship service account.
You can also give the training firm permission to reserve funds on your behalf.
What you’ll need
You must be confident of the following:
What apprenticeship standard will the apprentice work on, and when will the apprenticeship training begin?
You can change the apprenticeship start date and standard before the apprentice starts.
