Join us and joint hosts, Wilkins Kennedy, at this breakfast event as part of National Apprenticeship Week. The seminar will focus on understanding the upcoming changes to the apprenticeship levy, the financial implications going forward and how local businesses can prepare for and take advantage of the changes.
In November 2015 the Government announced its aim to grow the number of apprenticeships to three million by 2020. To meet this target, from April 2017, the way the Government funds apprenticeships will change. Any employers with an annual payroll bill of more than £3 million will be required to pay a new National Apprenticeship Levy. There will also be changes to the funding for apprenticeship training for employers, with businesses of any size able to apply for funding to spend on apprenticeship training.
This event is aimed at all businesses in the region looking to start or grow an apprenticeship programme, or with concerns about the impact the levy will have on their business.
