Apprenticeship Levy Pooling

The Combined Authority is committed to apprenticeships and recognise the value they offer to both society and the economy. It is possible for levy payers to share their unspent levy contributions with smaller organisations who may have limited access to apprenticeship funding.

Whether you’re a non-levy paying organisation and wish to access funding for apprenticeship delivery, or a levy paying organisation who would like to share your unspent levy to ensure the money is spent on apprenticeships in the region, fill in the form below to get in touch.
