Degree apprenticeships are the fastest-growing route to attracting top talent into industry. They are co-designed by employers and bring together the best of higher education and vocational on-the-job training. They deliver high level, sought-after skills while offering employees an alternative to a traditional degree course.
Apprenticeship levy-paying employers (those with pay bills over £3m) pay for apprenticeship training from their online levy accounts via the government's apprenticeship service. They will also receive a 10% government top-up to their online accounts. Non-levy payers pay only 10% of the cost of apprenticeship training, with the remaining 90% being paid by the government.
