Levy transfer opportunities in Sussex

Since April 2019 employers paying the apprenticeship levy have been able to transfer up to 25% of the funds in their apprenticeship account to as many employers as they choose. Transferred funds can be used to pay for training and assessment costs of the apprenticeship, employers receiving funds will still be responsible for the wage of their apprentice.
