This survey is being undertaken by Cornwall & Isles of Scilly Local Enterprise Partnership.  We want to get a better picture of the Apprenticeship levy fund levels in the County, the amount of Levy being spent, unspent and potentially available for transfer to other local businesses.  By collecting this information and your views, we want to establish if there is a need for a brokerage service, alongside the planned new national portal to help support larger levy paying employers to spend their own Levy on Apprenticeship training and/or transfer to other local businesses, supporting the economic priorities of Cornwall. 

The Apprenticeship Levy came into effect on 6th April 2017.  All UK employers with a total employee pay bill above £3m a year pay the Levy. Employers can only spend funds in their Apprenticeship Service account on apprenticeship training from a government-approved training provider. 

Individual employer Levy funds expire if not used within 24 months.  Instead of a percentage or 100% of unspent Levy funds being automatically collected by Government, Levy employers can transfer up to 25% of the annual value of their account to other employers.  Meaning, funding can be retained for the economic benefit of Cornwall, helping other local employers to pay for their Apprenticeship training costs.  From August 2021, the Government plan to introduce a new service to help simplify the Levy transfer and matching process – helping Levy employers to ‘pledge’ and choose how their funds are used.
