Donate your apprenticeship Levy

Are you looking to donate your levy to help fund SME’s? Then you’ve come to the right place! As you’re a levy paying employer, you could find yourself with a surplus of unspent funding in your account. If your business is struggling to find an outlet for the extra funding within its own four walls, then why not consider donating it to a smaller business that could really benefit from the additional support?

We’re making it possible for this to happen. By providing a Levy Donation portal, we’re here to help you on your way to making a difference. Consider donating your levy to another fellow smaller employer or directly to the HomeServe Foundation to play your part in supporting bridging the skills gap.

Follow these 6 simple steps on how to pledge your levy:

1: Login in to your apprenticeship service account. Within the financial section, there is the option to create a levy pledge.

2: You will be able to see the remaining unspent levy in your account when completing the pledge so you can decide how much you would like to donate.

3: You can then enter the required characteristics of the employers applying for the pledge, as well as your own details (including sector, location and whether you would like to remain anonymous).

4: Once the pledge is approved, the donation will go live and employers will be able to apply. You will be notified with any applications made.

5: Within the portal, you can review applications for your pledge, contact the applications and complete due diligence checks to ensure the motivations match.

6: You will then have the choice to submit approval for the chosen employer to receive levy funds.

Flexi-job apprenticeship will allow agencies to be the apprentice’s employer for the duration of their apprenticeship while placing the apprentice with other host employers for short term placements. This will enable apprentices to move between businesses as they complete their apprenticeship, while remaining employed throughout by the agency.
