From May 2017, new Government rules were introduced regarding the funding of apprenticeships. 

JTL has compiled a short guide to help you the employer understand the changes and your key responsibilities when recruiting apprentices.

The funding rules will differ depending on whether you have a pay bill over £3 million per year and also if you have more or less than 50 employees.
