When to use reserve funding:

  • Reserved funding is available to use from the month of the apprenticeship start date and the following 2 months. The reserved funding will expire at the end of the 3rd month if not used.

  • To avoid reserved funding from expiring, you need to add apprentice details. You can only have a combination of up to 3 ‘active’ or ‘used’ reservations at any time For example: If you choose January as the apprenticeship training start date, the reserved funding is valid for January, February and March and expires on 1st April.

Levy Transfer:

  • Levy paying employers can transfer up to 25% of their annual funds to any organisation that wants to receive a transfer.
