Apprenticeship course fees are subject to the age of the apprentice, and the size of the company
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 £450.
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 £450.
A levy paying company will pay the full cost of the apprenticeship from their levy account which in this case would amount to £9,000.
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.
