There is still much detail to be announced, such as how non-levy payers will be supported through ‘co-investment’ but further information will be published throughout the year in June, October and December 2016.
The government are also calling for employers to assist with developing and testing the new digital apprenticeship service, anyone wishing to be involved can email - DAS@bis.gsi.gov.uk
The changes mean this is a good time to start thinking about apprenticeships at your business, especially if you don’t have them already. While some may see this as a tax, they can also be seen as a great opportunity.
Organisations such as YMCA Training can help you find quality apprenticeships tailored to your needs and offer advice about how to make the most of the accompanied government funding that will be made available.
If you’d like to discuss how apprenticeships are changing and how your business can benefit please contact Cheryl Sharp, Head of Business Development, on 07341 072491 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
