Apprenticeship Reforms: The changes, choices and challenges
Mon 3 April 2017, 14:45 – 17:00 BST
Major reforms soon come into effect to the funding model for apprenticeships. From April employers with an annual wage bill of over £3 million will pay an apprenticeship levy and will access a new digital apprenticeship service to spend available funds on apprenticeship training. Levy and non-levy paying employers will be affected by the introduction of funding bands, the transition from frameworks to standards, and a range of new funding incentives.
We are running this briefing to help you make sense of the changes, to find out what the reforms mean to you.
