Employers – make your apprenticeship levy work for you

If your organisation still has levy funds left, now is the time to make the most of them. Remember – small non-levy paying employers can also take advantage of the scheme through fund transfers

At Farnborough College of Technology, we work with hundreds of employers to help train their workforce, identify training needs, and guide them through the levy. Apprenticeships are available all the way up to degree and postgraduate level, and available across all sectors, from accounting to engineering, and human resources to paralegal.

Our goal is to help employers train their workforce with the support they need to start seeing results quickly, and with as little paperwork as possible.

Small employers and transferring levy funds

Employers who pay the apprenticeship levy can choose to transfer any unused funds to another employer, using the apprenticeship service. For example, a smaller employer who does not pay the levy. This would help them to pay for apprenticeship training and assessment.

If you want to support a smaller organisation by transferring levy funds, please email business@farn-ct.ac.uk.

For smaller employers, you can find other employers who may want to transfer funds by:

  • Speaking to our Business Services team by emailing business@farn-ct.ac.uk or by calling 01252 407299
  • Working with employers in your supply chain
  • Getting in touch with employers in your industry
  • Working with regional partners

A levy-paying employer can transfer a maximum of 25% of their levy funds.
