In April 2017 the way the government funds apprenticeships in England is changing. Some employers will be required to contribute to a new apprenticeship levy, and there will be changes to the funding for apprenticeship training for all employers.
Apprenticeships have long been recognised as a crucial way to develop the skills wanted by employers.
The Government’s aim is to increase the quality and quantity of apprenticeships in England, reaching three million starts in 2020.
The Levy will put employers at the heart of paying and choosing apprenticeship training.
