Cost to members
The way the government funds Apprenticeships for any businesses in England has changed. Some employers are required to contribute to an Apprenticeship Levy, and others will need to contribute via a co-investment.
The Apprenticeship Levy requires all employers operating in the UK, with a pay bill over £3 million each year to make an investment in Apprenticeships. You will be able to access funding for Apprenticeships through your Digital Apprenticeship Service (DAS) account and will be able to use this to pay for training and assessment for any Apprentices in England.
Employers who don’t fall within this bracket, who have a pay bill of less than £3 million and more than 50 employees can have 95% of the training costs of an apprentice funded by the government from April 2019 onwards – currently the funding is 90%.
|“I have worked with Qube Learning since the launch of our Supply Chain Warehouse Operative pilot scheme in February 2018 and have formed a very successful partnership.
Qube are extremely proactive and receptive to new ideas or ways of making the scheme more successful and are extremely forward thinking, always looking at innovative ways of approaching situations. We hold bi-weekly account management calls where we discuss any individual issues or amendments, we need to make to the programme delivery.
For John Lewis, what really stood out from the beginning was the willingness of Qube to learn the Partnership and immerse itself in our culture.”
