Dorset Council's apprenticeship levy
11 Mar 2020
Dorset (not Bournemouth, Christchurch or Poole) childcare employers can now access Dorset Council's apprenticeship levy and receive 100% funding to cover the following level 2 to 5 qualifications for paid staff:
- a level 2 or 3 early years or playwork apprenticeship
- a level 5 Children and Young People and Families Manager apprenticeship
- a level 2, 5, 6 or 7 leadership apprenticeship
The levy doesn't cover volunteers and self-employed people (therefore childminders), but they may be eligible for our general childcare qualification funding.
