What will this training cost me?
If you are aged between 16 and 18 when you start your Apprenticeship Training Programme, there is no charge to you or your employer as the college will claim the funding for the cost of your programme directly from the Government.
If you are aged 19 or over and studying a Level 2 or Level 3 Apprenticeship, your employer will have to be willing to contribute as the Government will only fund part of the costs of your training – this is currently between £80 - £110 depending on the type of Apprenticeship you wish to complete.
