Information and guidance for schools on the Apprenticeship Levy.
An apprentice is an employee. They undertake real work for employers which provides an ideal opportunity for the individual to earn and learn at the same time. An apprenticeship enables on the job training whilst gaining practical skills, but is not intended to be a replacement for an established post. The introduction of the new apprenticeship funding system means that anyone can access training through an apprenticeship pathway, including existing staff. Apprenticeships can now provide a high quality and prestigious pathway to a successful career to any role within a school. Apprenticeships can be from a Level 2 all the way up to a Level 7.
