Funding reservation limits

Smaller employers that do not pay the apprenticeship levy can reserve funds for up to 10 apprenticeship starts on standards. They cannot reserve any funds for frameworks. 

We’ve introduced reservation restrictions to make sure that funding for apprenticeships is affordable within the government’s overall budget for apprenticeships. We will continue to monitor the number of reservations and may limit or increase the number available in the future.

This will not affect any funding that you have already reserved. 

How we’ll let you know

If you’ve already reserved funds for 10 apprenticeships or we reach the overall reservation limit, we’ll tell you when you try to reserve more funds.

If you need to change the apprenticeship, you can change it when you select 'add apprentice'.
