Apprenticeship Levy Management

The CALM approach

The Apprenticeship Levy is not just there to pay for the young apprentices you may set on each year. It is a tax to fund all apprenticeships and your organisation pays the levy whether you use it or not.

Fortunately, apprenticeship frameworks are designed for all ages and are very flexible.

Given the right assistance, your organisation can use its Levy pot to fund valuable programmes that benefit your workforce and your business.

Thanks to our work in designing and delivering thousands of apprenticeship programmes, the Education Compliance team have the skills and resourced to offer a flexible package of assistance to Levy-paying organisations.
