Views sought on plans to boost apprenticeships
17 August 2016
The government has now published its proposals for a new funding model for apprenticeships and further details on the apprenticeship levy.
Under the plans for the levy, the government has proposed that employers that are too small to pay the levy – around 98% of employers in England – will have 90% of the costs of training paid for by the government.
Extra support, worth £2,000 per trainee, will also be available for employers and training providers that take on 16- to 18-year-old apprentices or young care leavers.
Employers with fewer than 50 employees will also have 100% of training costs paid for by government if they take on these apprentices.
