Employers to learn more about Apprenticeship Levy at Advanced Engineering 2017

October 12th, 2017

Businesses of all sizes can learn more about the new Apprenticeship Levy and how to achieve maximum return on investment at this year’s Advanced Engineering exhibition.

On the second day of the conference Skills Training UK’s Skills Director Stephen Crawley will be talking to employers about the Government’s recent Apprenticeship Reforms.

Topics covered will include how larger employers (those with an annual payroll greater than £3million) can manage their Apprenticeship Levy payments and maximise the opportunities for workforce development.

He will also explain the opportunities and incentives available for smaller employers and how they can use Apprenticeships to develop their teams.

Figures recently published by the Department for Education show that around half of eligible employers are registered on the new Levy system – showing many are still unaware of the Levy even though they are paying for it.

Stephen Crawley, Skills Director at Skills Training UK, said: “What’s clear is that many employers are still unsure about what they have to do. Some appear to be deferring or freezing Apprenticeship recruitment, while others are unaware that that they can invest their Levy funds into up-skilling and re-skilling existing employees.

“Our sector expertise and strong track record ensure we’re ideally placed to help employers of all sizes to understand the reforms and gain maximum value for money – creating a highly skilled and motivated workforce that make a tangible contribution to performance.”
