Event description
Join us for a FREE breakfast event where you will have the opportunity to find out about the GM Apprenticeship Levy Matchmaking Service

About this Event

In response to the recent funding constraints for non-levy employers (whereby almost 3 in 4 apprenticeship providers are now unable to work with SMEs), the Greater Manchester Combined Authority (GMCA) has commissioned the Growth Company to develop an online apprenticeship levy matchmaking service. This service has recently been launched and allows levy payers (public and private sector) to transfer unspent funds to non-levy payers across Greater Manchester. This new scheme builds on a similar initiative in Salford where larger employers make a contribution to a city-wide pot of money for SME apprenticeships.

We are holding a FREE breakfast event on Wednesday 18th September where you will have the opportunity to learn all about the service, the benefits for businesses and the value of apprenticeships. It will also provide a platform for you to network with like-minded employers who are in a similar situation or who are looking to transfer unspent levy funds to eligible non-levy organisations.

Is your organisation based in Salford? Salford City Council have launched a similar scheme whereby organisations have joined forces to create the Salford Skills for Business Apprenticeship Fund. The fund is used to support SMEs to cover the cost of apprenticeships. You can find out more here.
