Best use of Funding

Let us help you manage maximise your funding options for our various Apprenticeship and NVQs. These include the Apprenticeship Levy, CITB Levy and other funding opportunities.

Apprenticeship Levy

We set out to ensure you are in control.

The Apprenticeship Levy was set up by the Government with the aim of funding three million apprenticeships in the UK by 2020. It affects all UK employers with a payroll bill in excess of £3m. Our advanced levy management programme ensures you have total control over our activity within your business. Key to this is ensuring the initial planning, regular updates and the professional development of your staff is forefront to the operation.

Our levy management programme includes:

  • Full planning and administration of development programme. Full levy financial management control and updates. Dedicated account manager.
  • Full implementation of development planning tools and administration (if required) Management of up skilling and / or new recruitment of people.
  • Development from Level 2 to Level 6 degrees are available.

Levy funds can only be used as a contribution towards the cost of apprenticeship training and end- point assessment with an approved training provider such as Geason Training. It cannot be counted towards an apprentice’s wages or wider training programme.

Geason Training can ensure your financial management of the levy will maximise all opportunities that are available via the CITB grant system.

CITB and other grant opportunities

Small and medium sized enterprises under this payroll bill threshold and who are non-levy paying employers will continue to be funded through provider allocations for the time being, although this shall change in 2019.

We offer a funding and grant support service. Through this we help in-scope construction companies to maximise the CITB grant opportunities that are available. Additionally, we help all of our customers who wish to use this service to access other grant and funding opportunities which may be available and relevant to their strategic objectives.

Save on NI Contributions

You can now save on expensive National Insurance contributions after the government abolished employer National Insurance contributions for apprentices under 25 years of age. The change, which came into effect on 6 April 2016, makes hiring an apprentice even better value. This exemption will apply to both existing employers with apprentices and those taking on a new apprentice.
