RHA calls for Apprenticeship Levy to become Skills Levy

21 Sep 2022 Posted By Paul Mummery

RHA is calling for the Apprenticeship Levy to be reformed to a Skills Levy so it can provide businesses with funded access to the training that best fits their requirements.

Businesses need a levy that is flexible for the learner and employer alike, that can react to and prevent future skills shortages.

Introduced in 2017 the Apprenticeship Levy is paid by businesses with a payroll of £3m and above to provide apprenticeship training.

In England levy funding can only be used for apprenticeships of at least 12 months’ duration. This format is inflexible and fails to meet the needs of many employers across the economy
