What is the Apprenticeship Levy?
Most schools pay funds towards apprenticeship training through a 0.5% charge of their annual pay bill called the Apprenticeship Levy. This might be paid directly by a School, Trust, or Local Authority. The funds collected via the levy can be used to pay for apprenticeship training and assessments.
How can I use the Apprenticeship Levy towards the cost of the Teacher Training Programme?
If you're a school who pays the Apprenticeship Levy, you can use up to £9000 of funding from your apprenticeship service account to cover the cost of training and assessing the graduate trainee teachers enrolled at your school on the Engage Teacher Training Programme. If you decide to use Apprenticeship Levy funding towards the cost of training and assessing a trainee graduate in your school via the Engage Teacher Training Programme, you will have some further responsibilities and obligations as an employer.
Will trainees receive the same qualifications if I take the apprenticeship route?
Trainees on the Programme will receive the same modular training and PGCE materials on both routes, for the qualification of a PGCE and QTS.
