Employers still failing to take advantage of Apprenticeship Levy

Almost two years after the implementation of the Apprenticeship Levy, apprenticeship start figures have continued to fall – research from City & Guilds has found.

The levy was designed to increase investment in apprenticeship training and assessment. According to guidelines from the Department for Education (DfE), an employer paying £10,000 a month into their levy account would receive that £10,000 back to spend on apprenticeships, plus a ten per cent contribution from the Government.
