What you can spend apprenticeship funding on – All Employers

Funds in your digital account, and funding provided by the government through co-investment, can only be used towards the costs of apprenticeship training and end point assessment. This must be with an approved training provider and assessment organisation.
It can’t be used on other costs associated with your apprentices or wider training effort. For example wages, statutory licences to practise, travel and subsidiary costs, managerial costs, traineeships, work placement programmes or the costs of setting up an apprenticeship programme.
What is an apprenticeship?
There are rules governing what an apprenticeship is. The main ones are:
  • the apprentice must be employed in a real job; they may be an existing employee or a new hire
  • the apprentice must work towards achieving an approved apprenticeship standard or apprenticeship framework
  • the apprenticeship training must last at least 12 months
  • the apprentice must spend at least 20% of their time on off-the-job training
Employing an apprentice is very simple. 360 Recruitment Limited can happily provide all the information you need to know in order to employ an apprentice or upskill existing staff through our apprenticeship programmes.
