This course should support a learner’s progression which may include:

For employer’s with less than 50 employees who do not pay the apprenticeship levy and who take on an apprentice who is aged between 16-18 at the start of their apprenticeship, there will be no direct cost and the full training costs will be covered by Government funding. If the apprentice is aged 19+ the government partially subsides the training costs and the employer will need to pay 5% of the costs. In the case of this course, the fee would be £200.
For an employer with more than 50 employees a 5% charge will be implemented regardless of the age of the apprentice which in this case would be £200.
A levy paying company will pay the full cost of the apprenticeship from their levy account which in this case would amount to £4,000.
Please note that course fees are to be paid by the employer and apprentices cannot be asked to make a financial contribution toward their training.
