How does an employer pay for apprenticeship training?

The Apprenticeships Levy

As an employer you will pay for training from your levy through the Digital Apprenticeship Service, which is an online service that allows employers to choose and pay for apprenticeship training. Find out more on the Government website. Apprentices must be paid at least their age-related Apprentice National Minimum Wage.
