Does the levy apply to me? - Forum

19/10/2017 15:39   Poppy Clark

I'm quite keen to learn about the apprenticeship levy but am not sure if I am eligible. I'm originally from England but currently reside in Wales. Does the levy apply to the entirety of the UK or England only?

Hi there Poppy,

Thank you for your question! Whether you're an employer or an individual looking to be an apprentice, the levy can definitely benefit you in Wales - and across the whole of the UK.


All UK employers with an annual ‘pay bill’ of £3 million or more need to pay the Apprenticeship Levy. You can find out if your company is eligible and read more about it here:

All UK nations have different rules in regards to how employers can access the funds they pay towards the Apprenticeship Levy. Here are all the details for Wales, and numbers you can call for help:

Telephone: 029 2090 6800 / 0800 028 4844



If you're an individual looking to become an apprentice, the introduction of the levy generally means more employers are looking to take on apprentices to best make use of the funding. You can find out more information about how to apply for apprenticeships in Wales, here:

I hope that helps as a starting point!

If there are any other employers in Wales happy to share their experiences with the levy, please get in touch!

Best wishes,

The team
