Gift your Levy for Growth

Make a real difference to people’s lives

We’re working with employers to generate levy-gifted funds

Join our campaign to make a real social impact

As a large employer, you’re already paying the apprenticeship levy, but did you know 25% could be legitimately gifted to smaller businesses instead of it being returned to Government?

Gifting your unspent levy couldn’t be easier – but has a huge social impact, not just to the growth of small businesses but entire communities.  This means your unspent levy can be used to fund apprenticeships that will change lives. 

By gifting surplus levy, you can sponsor an apprenticeship in a sector or industry area that aligns to your CSR agenda, while at the same time supporting employment and skills development in SMEs who benefit from fully funded apprenticeship training. 

As an example, gifting £100k of unused levy to a nursery can mean more trained teaching assistants, leading to better care and education for our children, and ultimately benefitting our society as a whole. 

Our dedicated Levy Gifting Team do all the hard work for you, with no extra administration on your part.
