Apprenticeship programmes designed for your organisation

Develop Training Ltd has been providing high quality, employer-led, apprenticeship training programmes for some of the UK's best known utilities and infrastructure companies for over a decade.

In July 2021 we joined forces with our parent company JTL, one of the UK’s largest providers of work-based training, to deliver our range of apprenticeship programmes. JTL have helped thousands of people in England and Wales to launch exciting careers as electricians, plumbing & heating engineers and engineering maintenance operatives in the building services engineering sector through apprenticeship training. You can find out more about JTL here.

All apprenticeship programmes will continue to be delivered with the same trainers and locations but with the additional infrastructure, support and experience that JTL is so well-positioned to provide. By consolidating our provision in this way we are able to guarantee unrivalled expertise and infrastructure across the board.

What is the Apprenticeship Levy?

The Apprenticeship Levy is a payment that will be collected from large employers who have an annual wage bill of more than £3 million and applies to both the public and private sectors. The payment is paid to the HMRC through the business' PAYE returns. Managed by the ESFA, the purpose of the Levy is to encourage employers to invest in apprenticeship programmes and to raise additional funds to improve the quality and number of apprentices in the UK, addressing the nationwide skills shortage in the process.

How are your payments calculated?

The Levy amount is 0.5% of a business' payroll; employer's get an allowance of £15,000 to offset against the amount they owe and only applies to businesses with a payroll over £3m.
For example:

A business with a payroll of £3m:
£3,000,000 (payroll) x 0.5% (levy amount) = £15,000 (amount owing pre allowance) - £15,000 (levy allowance) = £0 (levy payable)

A business with a payroll of £6m:
£6,000,000 (payroll) x 0.5% (levy amount) = £30,000 (amount owing pre allowance) - £15,000 (levy allowance) = £15,000 (levy payable)

Businesses paying the levy can access their contribution from their Online Digital Apprenticeship Service account that can be used to pay for apprenticeship training and assessment in England.
