Somerset County Council offers Apprenticeship Levy Transfers

Businesses paying the Apprenticeship Levy can now transfer 25% of their credit each year to fund apprenticeships hosted by other employers. Somerset County Council views this as an opportunity to support the community in Somerset.

If an apprentice meets the below criteria Somerset County Council will accept an expression of interest to fund the candidate via levy transfer. The council will only conduct a levy transfer where no alternative 100% co-investment or levy funding is available.

If the candidate does not meet the criteria, but you believe they should be eligible, we would accept an expression of interest with a supporting statement from a local authority personal advisor or DWP personal advisor.
