How will employers be able to spend the money?

The Government is creating an online portal, the Digital Apprenticeship Service (DAS), which all organisations will have access to, regardless of whether they have contributed to the levy. The proposal is that employers in scope will be able to reclaim their levy contribution via a digital voucher (in England). This voucher is then used to “pay” for Apprenticeship training and assessment.

The Government has said that Digital vouchers can be used for Apprenticeships for all ages, types and sectors and should be used to purchase training and assessment.

The definition of what is eligible under “training and assessment” is not yet published.
