Event description

Description

The Apprenticeship Levy was established just under two years ago to help employers to build a skilled workforce fit to “compete on the world stage”. However, not everyone is making the most of the opportunity…

Businesses have been allowed 24 months to spend their funds before they expire.

And it is estimated that of the projected £2.7bn levy pot across all industries, just £370m (13.7pc) has been drawn down to fund courses, according to Department for Education (DfE) data.

March will mark 24 months since the levy was introduced, and under government rules any unspent levy from March 2017 will be lost on a rolling monthly programme, decreasing the funds in the employer’s levy pot.

In April, the businesses which are paying the levy, but who haven’t spent it, will start to lose it and the funds will be gradually returned to the Treasury.

This means that businesses need to act now or lose out.

Join us for our free Apprenticeship Event where we will help you understand how to make the most of your Levy pot.

During this session we'll be covering:

  • The Levy, paying or non-paying - What does that mean to business?
  • Funding explained and made simple
  • The new rules on funding transfers
  • Using the Levy to support your business strategy
  • How does a Leadership Development or Learning and Development Apprenticeship work?
  • 20% off the job learning - What does that mean and how is it covered?
  • Optional qualifications explained
  • EPA - End point assessment - What's involved and how is it managed?
  • Case studies
  • Q&A

(agenda is subject to change)

Breakfast and refreshements are provided and there will be ample opportunity to network and to ask the team any questions about your specific needs.
