To ask Mr Chancellor of the Exchequer, what the estimated annual cost of the apprenticeship levy will be to primary schools in North Tyneside constituency; and if he will make it his policy to seek small school exemption from the levy.

The apprenticeship levy will apply across the UK and will be collected from employers on a UK-wide basis. The Government wants as many schools as possible to take advantage of apprenticeships.

It is not possible to produce a robust estimate of the amount of the levy which will be paid by individual schools. However, the expected yield for the apprenticeship levy is published in table C.5: ‘Current Receipts’, in the Autumn Statement 2016 document. This is available to view at: https://www.gov.uk/government/uploads/system/uploads/attachment_data/file/571559/autumn_statement_2016_web.pdf.

The Government has been clear that there will be no exemptions to paying the apprenticeship levy.
