Sodexo to transfer £800k of its Apprenticeship Levy to smaller firms

Services company Sodexo has committed to transferring £800k of its annual Apprenticeship Levy to small-and-medium enterprises as part of its approach to levy transfer.

The amount to be transferred represents 25% of its annual £3.3m government levy to support apprenticeship training. The company said it takes “a proactive approach” to levy transfer to support other organisations who could benefit from apprenticeship training.

In a statement, Sodexo said it “ensures it is ‘gifting with purpose’ to employers that share the company’s ethos when it comes to health & safety and ensuring their workforce is diverse and inclusive. Through levy transfer, Sodexo has so far supported 63 apprentices at SMEs, with more coming on board regularly”.
