This month, the government brought in new legislation that will affect the way in which all RQF awards will be funded from here on out.

Employers are now expected to make a financial contribution towards their staff's RQF qualifications. The proportion of this contribution is dependent upon the wage bill of the employer.

Those employers who have a wage bill of under £3 million, are required to make a 10% contribution towards all awards. This contribution must come directly from the employer. The payment of the contribution is flexible, and we are able to provide monthly, quarterly and upfront payment plans for the co-funded businesses who choose to work with us.

If your business' overall wage bill is above £3 million, a 50% contribution towards all RQF awards is now expected. The 50% contribution must be deducted from your company's Digital Wallet, and used for the payment of all RQF awards. The digital wallet has already been topped up by £15,000, by the government, to fund your staff member’s training.

Moving forward, Network Learning Centres *(change to Tempo for the other website), will be providing RQF Apprenticeships under both the Levy and Co-Funded framework, using the old standards.

If you would like to receive information regarding our costings for the 10% and 50% contributions, contact us today and we’ll be happy to help. We can also guide you through the process of setting up, and using, your digital account to enrol your learners on the Levy scheme.
