Learning and development

Rachel Sharp Editor's message: Organisations will benefit from a competitive advantage if they continually develop their workforce – from apprentices through to future business leaders. Attention should be paid to the most appropriate method of learning delivery, and evaluating the outcomes to ensure that the organisation receives value for money and meets business needs.

The Government has introduced the apprenticeship levy, which came into force on 6 April 2017. The levy is designed to give employers a greater incentive to take on apprentices and to put investment in apprenticeships on a sustainable footing for the long term.
