Funding may be available to support the cost of your apprentice’s training and their salary. The Northern Skills Group Apprenticeship team are on hand to discuss funding options and support you with eligibility criteria and how you can apply. We also offer free advice and guidance on The Apprenticeship Levy.
In terms of eligibility, individuals are able to undertake an apprenticeship at a higher level than a qualification they currently hold, including any previously completed apprenticeships. They can also undertake an apprenticeship at the same level, or lower level than a qualification they already hold as long as the new apprenticeship allows for new skills to be acquired and the content of the training is materially different from any previous qualification or apprenticeship.
