Northampton College

Northampton College is a leading provider of high quality Apprenticeships that can help you develop your workforce. No matter how large or small your business, we can help by:

  • Supplying new apprentices to augment your existing team with talented and enthusiastic individuals
  • Signing up your existing staff on to Apprenticeship programmes that will improve their skills
  • Offering workplace training or professional programmes that will bring out the best in your existing team

Make your Apprenticeship Levy payment work for you

If your PAYE bill to HMRC is £3m* or more, you will pay 0.5% of the total towards Apprenticeships training from April 2017. You will be able to spend your contribution on training new or existing staff and the government will top-up your overall Levy payment by 10%.

There are some incentives for employing young apprentices including:

  • A £1,000 payment towards the cost of employing an apprentice aged 16-18
  • No National Insurance contributions for apprentices aged under 25.

Once you have paid into the Levy, funds expire after 24 months so workforce development will need to be planned well in advance to gain the maximum benefit.

Find out how we can help with:

  • Recruitment and support for new employees
  • Advice on the best Apprenticeship frameworks/standards
  • Identifying skills gaps
  • A tailored approach to suit your business.

*Subject to a £15k allowance
