The Apprenticeship Levy was introduced in 2017 to address a growing nationwide skills gap. Amazon is offering to transfer some of its levy funding to eligible sellers for all apprenticeships until degree level.
There is no limitation on the apprenticeship standards that are eligible for this funding. To help you decide which standard best fits your business, a full list of current apprenticeship standards can be found in the Institute for Apprenticeships (IFA) website.
For more information on the Apprenticeship Levy, go to Apprenticeships: detailed information.
