Setting up and implementing an apprenticeship scheme to recover your apprenticeship levy is complex, time-consuming and needs expert knowledge. The National Skills Academy for Rail (NSAR) Apprenticeship Levy Planner will help explain the process and help you to get the most out of your apprenticeship programme.

The Apprenticeship Levy Planner helps you:

  • quickly and easily model the apprenticeship programmes that best fit your needs
  • immediately see how much of your levy contribution has been recovered

Its easy to use calculator helps employers to:

  • quickly see how to optimise its levy contribution
  • determine the right mix between new entrants and up-skilling to achieve apprenticeship numbers
  • ensure you're developing and investing in the skills your business needs for the future

Rather than focusing on a one-year period, with the planner, NSAR will work with you to produce a strategic apprenticeship resource plan that covers a period of many years, such as a rail franchising period. This enables greater control over your levy spending and supports you to plan for the future.
