Funding

You can utilise funding from the government to pay for apprenticeship training and assessment.

With our knowledge and access to the Digital Apprenticeship Service, we can fully manage the funding process for you and claim your funds on your behalf.

As a non-levy paying community trust, there are two options available:

Option 1:

As a non-levy payer, you can pay 5% towards the cost of training and assessing your apprentice, and the government will pay the rest (95%) – up to the funding band maximum.

Option 2:

Alternatively, you might be able to access 25% of the main club’s apprenticeship Levy. At SCL, we can support you in approaching your club, and managing this process for you.
