From 6th April 2017 there will be a significant change in the funding of apprenticeships in the UK which will have a major impact on organisations that plan to employ apprentices after this date.
The new approach to funding will see all organisations operating in the UK with a salary expenditure in excess of £3million, paying a levy of 0.5% of their total pay bill to the HMRC. This approach is a game changer in the apprenticeship funding process. Businesses who fall into this new levy funding process will need to understand the impact this will have on their apprenticeship recruitment in the future. Furthermore, it is important that organisations know how they can derive optimum value from their levy pot.
With the introduction of the Trailblazer Standards, apprenticeships are becoming more job or vocational focused than ever before, whereby the employer will have more input into the training and development the apprentice will undertake throughout their respective programme. Again this is another radical change that all organisations that are involved with apprenticeships need to be aware of in the future.
Following lunch, delegates will be given the opportunity to discuss the changes and challenges to their respective organisations with fellow delegates in a workshop environment.
At the end of this event, delegates will have a clear understanding of the changes that will be introduced in the apprenticeships from April 2017, and be able to develop a more effective and value driven strategy in their apprenticeship programmes.
