Support for employers who do not pay the Apprenticeship Levy

Greater Manchester Chamber of Commerce is offering a FREE workforce development plan with one of its Skills Consultants, as part of its SME Support Project.

This is an initiative to support non-levy paying businesses across Greater Manchester discussing topics such as:

  • Business plans and growth aspirations

  • Access to funding and grants options

  • Upskilling staff, professional development and apprenticeship options

  • Current barriers faced and any support which may be beneficial.

To be eligible for an appointment and possibly even a £3,000 grant, you need to:            

  • Be non-levy payers

  • Have a registered office based in Greater Manchester

  • Have not employed an apprentice for at least two years.

If you would like to take advantage of this free service and book an appointment, please contact Greater Manchester Chamber of Commerce via
