Livingstone's Director, James Local on what to expect from the apprenticeship levy

As part of the Government’s drive to create three million apprenticeships and double the size of the apprenticeship market to £2.5billion by 2020, an apprentice levy has been introduced.

The Government had been planning to cut funding for 16-18 year old training by up to 30% as part of the new apprenticeship levy regime, but heeded warnings from businesses and campaigners and changed course. The new system includes ear-marking £60million to help those in the most disadvantaged areas in the UK.
