Many larger levy-paying employers have their headquarters in one region, but they employ staff across the country. This means that we cannot attribute the levy that was collected and spent in individual locations. Individual employers control where apprenticeship funds are spent to meet their current and future skills needs.
Since the introduction of the levy in April 2017, a total of £370 million has been paid to providers on behalf of employers from their apprenticeship levy accounts, as at 30 September 2018. Payments from the apprenticeship service are made one month in arrears.
