Your Apprenticeship Levy

Embrace the potential of the Levy as a strategic tool to nurture talent, enrich educational programs,

and forge robust partnerships with industry experts.

All of your questions

By utilising your Apprenticeship Levy through our university delivered course, we provide your school or trust with a sustainable model of retaining and retraining staff through our Apprenticeship Levy-funded PGCE with QTS training year.

The vast majority of schools across the country will in some way contribute to an apprenticeship levy account. If your schools, academy trusts or local authorities wage bill exceeds £3m per annum they will be contributing into the levy.

Through your contributions into the levy employers including schools can use those accrued contributions to fund apprenticeships and training provisions for their staff including a university-delivered PGCE with QTS course. You can find out more on how to use them here.

Whilst most staff members will be eligible for the funding, it is important to note that they will need to be employed as a minimum of UQT 1 for the duration of their training year.
