British Manufacturers Call for Apprenticeship Levy Reform

by | 0 comments

Britain’s manufacturers are calling for an urgent summit with Government to discuss fundamental reforms to make the Apprenticeship Levy work, and to ensure the creation of additional numbers of high value manufacturing and engineering Apprenticeships. The call comes on the back of a survey by Engineering Employers Federation, ‘A Levy Price to Pay: The Apprenticeship Levy One Year On’, the manufacturers’ organisation showing overwhelming support for sweeping reforms to the operation of the Levy and the latest figures for overall Apprenticeship Starts showing a 31% fall in starts for January 2018 compared to the same period last year.
