The cap on apprentice numbers for small businesses that had caused some employers to turn away new starts has finally been scrapped by the skills minister. Robert Halfon confirmed in a letter to the sector on Thursday that small businesses which don’t pay the apprenticeship levy will no longer be limited to a maximum of 10 apprenticeship starts from April 3, 2023.
