Drove my chevy to the levy and the levy was high

A small detail around the issue of apprenticeships that probably needs to be borne in mind, especially if one of the issues you have with their use in schools would be funding.

The list below shows an approximation of how much each of the 50 largest MATs are currently paying out for the apprenticeship levy. This money is already being lost to schools unless they use it to help pay for apprentices.

Across all the MATs I have on my list the total is close to £40m.
