ACP APPRENTICESHIP 

Information for managers of non-levy paying organisations about the ACP Apprenticeship

Course costs for the ACP Apprenticeship for 22/23 are approximately £12,000 for the full 3-year Masters, paid to the university from the organisation’s apprenticeship levy. For non-levy paying organisations (i.e. those with a wage bill of less than £3 million) these costs are met through Government co-investment (95%) and employer contribution (5%***) Alternatively, these costs can be met fully through transfer of levy from a large local employer with levy to spare. 

***NB: the 5% employer contribution is met by the Faculty for Advanced Practice, enabling the ACP Apprenticeship course cost to be fully funded

On Monday 26th April 2021, Pam Case (Apprenticeship Lead- SYREC) presented an information session for managers of non-levy paying organisations on the process for setting up a digital account to reserve funding and requesting levy transfer. The session was recorded and can be accessed below:
