2017 will bring a fundamental change to the way large UK based employers think about and plan their Learning and Development.

The Employer Apprenticeship Levy comes into force early in 2017. You have time now to consider the implications of this.

We have a team across our Group who are working with other providers and stakeholders and have launched a service to support employers.

Levy Britain - A New National Support Service for Employers

Are you ready? You can access information, advice and guidance to prepare your organisation now.

In just under 5 months every employer located in England with a payroll over £3mil will be subject to a 0.5% tax, known as the Apprenticeship Levy. This is no ordinary tax, this tax will be put into an account in your name, available to use to train and develop your staff.

Are you ready to reclaim this money? You can access guidance in relation to this scheme for:

 - Developing a Levy Strategy, roadmap and implementation plan

 - Recruiting, developing and training new staff
