Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland will receive their share of the apprenticeship levy calculated in line with the Barnett formula. This will be £460 million for the period 2019 to 2020. Wales received £128 million in the period 2017 to 2018.

Skills, including apprenticeships, is a devolved matter. Therefore, it will be for the devolved administrations to decide how funds raised from the levy should be used in their administrations.
