Floristry Apprenticeships: How are they funded?

Large employers pay into an apprenticeship levy scheme.

Small employers share the cost of training and assessing apprentices with the government. This is called ‘co-investment’. The employer currently pays 5% towards the cost of apprenticeship training and the government pays 95%, up to the funding band maximum, which is £5000 for floristry. Co-investment funding is paid direct to the training provider, not the employer.

Employers access training funds by setting up a government-run apprenticeship service account, where they can:-

  • get apprenticeship funding

  • find and save apprenticeships

  • find, save and manage training providers

  • recruit apprentices

  • add and manage apprenticeships.

Some training providers will do all of this on behalf of the employer. For more information visit the UK Government's Apprenticeship resource hub.
