As an apprenticeship levy payer, West Sussex County Council can transfer 25% of their annual levy fund to other employers through a digital account.

This funding can then be used to fund apprenticeship training for a new, or existing staff member to help tackle skills gaps and the coronavirus pandemic.

Small and medium enterprises in the following areas will have their applications prioritised; science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM) fields, the creative digital sector, hospitality, tourism, manufacturing, health and social care organisations and, community and voluntary groups. 

The transfer of the funding will enable businesses in the county to develop their workforce for the future support the future of the local economy.
