FAQs

How much does an apprenticeship cost?

If you’re signing up as an apprentice, all you’ll need to cover is food and commuting costs. Your employer (and the government) covers all your tuition and assessment fees.

What funding support is available for employers?

The Apprenticeship Levy means that Government funding can cover up to 95% of the costs for an apprenticeship for employers. The Government can also cover up to 100% of the costs for certain training courses, too.

Every member of the EDN team has a great understanding of the funding options and requirements, so we’ll be able to help you choose the right funding path and help with any applications. Contact a member of the team to find out more.

How do I know if I’m eligible for an apprenticeship?

Apprentices need to be aged 16 or over, living in England and not be in full-time education. EDN provides apprenticeships from levels 3-7, but the level of apprenticeship you start on will depend on the qualifications, job and experience you currently have and the apprenticeship standard your employer wants to use.
