Apprenticeship Funding

Apprenticeships are funded by the Education Skills Funding Agency (ESFA) through approved training providers. DH Associates is a recognised provider of apprenticeships with a direct contract with the ESFA. We are able to support employers both large and small with accessing apprenticeship funding.

On 1 May 2017 the funding for apprenticeships was changed. ESFA introduced a co funding model with employers contributing to apprenticeships based on their size.

Levy Employers are those with an annual wage bill of more than £3 million and will pay a contribution of 90% matched by 10% from the government. Levy paying employers access their apprenticeship funding via their online Digital Apprenticeship Service (DAS) account. We work with a large number of levy employers assisting them with setting up and accessing their accounts, analysing and planning for workforce training needs, recruiting and monitoring apprentices, monitoring levy spend.

Over 98% of employers are non levy employers as they have a wage bill of £3 million pounds or less. The government fund 90% of the cost of the apprenticeship, with the employer contributing the remaining 10%.

We offer employers a complete, end-to-end apprentice recruitment and training service. Our experience business development officers are able to provide dedicated and bespoke advice to employers. You will have a dedicated advisor to support you access funding and set up training.
