CIPD Publishes Apprenticeship Levy Report

The Chartered Institute of Personal Development has reported on its survey of how employers had found the apprenticeship levy so far with some worrying findings:

  • Among employers who currently pay the apprenticeship levy, 53% would prefer a training levy, compared with just 17% supporting the apprenticeship levy in its current form.
  • Four in ten (40%) levy-paying employers say it will make little or no difference to the amount of training they offer.
  • Nearly half (46%) of levy-paying employers think that the levy will encourage their organisation to rebadge current training activity in order to claim back their allowance.
  • More than a fifth (22%) of all employers still don’t know whether they are liable to pay the levy.
