Employers lose £133m from apprenticeship levy accounts as funds expire

10 September 2019 (by admin)

The government has revealed that employers have so far lost access to £133m of apprenticeship levy funds as the rolling deadline for spending the money passed Recruit, train & retain the best graduates as home-grown teachers with Kingsbridge

In a recent parliamentary question tabled by MP Catherine McKinnell, Department for Education minister Kemi Badenoch reported that £96m went unclaimed in the last two months alone, with £44m and £52m left over in July and August 2019 respectively.

Kingsbridge Teacher Training makes it easy for schools and academies to use their apprenticeship levy to attract, recruit and train the best graduates as home-grown teachers.


The 1-year Kingsbridge programme allows schools to employ Teaching Apprentices and utilise apprenticeship funding for initial teacher training (ITT).

After 9 months the graduate will achieve QTS and then complete their End-Point Assessment to pass the apprenticeship.

The Teaching Apprenticeship programme provides a comprehensive 360-degree solution taking care of both the recruitment and training arrangements for schools and academies.
