How is it funded?
The Government contributes to the costs of training apprentices because they want to build a skilled workforce in the UK. Therefore, you may be eligible for full or part-funding.
16-18 year olds receive ‘full costs of training’, meaning you won’t pay a thing.
19-23 year olds receive 50% of training fees, thus you may need to cover some costs.
24+ year olds may still be entitled to help if they meet certain criteria.
