The government has published policy changes for Apprenticeship funding in England (from June 2022), which applies to apprentices who started after 1 June 2022. This updates the policy that has been in place since 1 November 2021. Key updates include:

  • the closure of the incentive payment scheme for hiring a new apprentice
  • the resetting of all non-levy employer reservation levels from 1 June 2022. This will enable employers who do not pay the levy to make up to ten new reservations to fund new starts 
  • the transferral of funds from employers who pay the levy to other employers through the apprenticeship service are not subject to reservations.
