The government’s apprenticeship reform programme aims to deliver more and better quality apprenticeships. This will boost the skills of the workforce and help to improve economic productivity whilst also meaning more young adults have the chance to pursue a successful career.
These reforms include changing the way apprenticeships in England are paid for, underpinned by a new apprenticeship levy, to be paid by larger employers from April 2017. The levy will lead to greater levels of investment in training and employers will be given more influence over how apprenticeships are designed and paid for.
The long awaited details of how the apprenticeship levy will be applied have now been published.
