Consultation on new apprenticeships levy

Close date: 2 October 2015

The Government consults on proposals for implementing the new apprenticeships levy to be imposed on larger employers in all industry sectors, both public and private, for the purpose of raising money to meet the cost of apprenticeship training. The consultation invites views on, among other things, how to determine the size of employer that the levy will apply to, whether or not a proportion of the apprenticeship funding raised from larger companies should be used to support apprenticeship training by smaller companies that have not paid the levy and the length of time employers should have in which to use the fund before it expires.
