All UK employers with annual salary bills of more than £3 million now pay an apprenticeship levy.
If you're an employer in Scotland who already has apprenticeship programmes in your organisation, apprenticeship funding will continue to be administered by Skills Development Scotland through contracted training providers and direct employer contracts.
If you don’t currently have any apprenticeship programmes, this is your opportunity to discover how work-based learning can drive your organisation forward in terms of performance and productivity. Read all about our Foundation, Modern and Graduate Level Apprenticeship programmes.
