Apprenticeship Levy employer guidance

14 December 2016

Employer guidance on the apprenticeship levy has been published which includes content for local authorities and schools.


Apprenticeship Levy for schools

For maintained schools, the local authority is the employer. Each local authority has an annual allowance of £15,000.

For voluntary-aided schools, foundation schools and academies, the governing body is the employer. Each governing body will be entitled to an allowance of £15,000.

Multi-academy trusts will get a single annual allowance of £15,000.

If a school becomes an academy part way through a tax year, the academy’s governing body will be responsible for the Apprenticeship Levy from this point and get a full allowance of £15,000.

CIPP comment

You can read the rest of the employer guidance on GOV.UK. We would recommend that this is read in conjunction with payroll software developer notifications and regulations for maximum benefit on the subject. See the Apprenticeships section at the beginning of the CIPP’s Policy News Journal (My CIPP/Policy hub on our website) for details of all previously published information.
