Evolve Learning Group have produced a report on how employers are viewing and using the Apprenticeship Levy six months on from it being introduced.

Brought into effect on 6 April 2017, the Apprenticeship Levy is a levy on UK employers to fund new apprenticeships. In England, control of apprenticeship funding is in the hands of employers through the Digital Apprenticeship Service, charged at a rate of 0.5% of an employer’s pay bill. Each employer receives an allowance of £15,000 to offset against their levy payment. 

Opinion Matters, on behalf of Evolve Learning Group and West London College, sampled 1005 employers with over 150 employees to find out how they used the Apprenticeship Levy and their views. Respondents were business decision-makers with some responsibility for staff training and recruitment. The full findings with detailed employer interviews are available in a report entitled, ‘The apprenticeship levy – an untapped opportunity?’ and is available to download below.

The summary of the report can be viewed below:
