Event Information

 Is the Apprenticeship Levy Working? Breakfast and Roundtable Discussion – 8th March, Crewe Hall, 8.00am – 10.00am


The Skills & Growth Company would like to invite you to join us for breakfast and an informal round table discussion with other levy-paying employers from across Cheshire East to share your experiences of the first year of the Apprenticeship Levy on your business.

The Apprenticeship Levy came into effect in April 2017 so, with the theme of this years National Apprenticeship Week (5-9 March) being ‘Apprenticeships Work’, we thought it would be an opportune time to invite some of the Levy paying employers from across our Borough to meet together over breakfast for an informal discussion and to share knowledge and lessons learned from the first year of the Levy.

We will have a key note speaker from the Education and Skills Funding Agency, the Government Department responsible for Apprenticeships, to provide an overview of how businesses are using the Levy to pay for their Apprenticeship Training.

It will also be an opportunity to share insights and experiences with other local levy paying businesses.

We will be able to explore questions such as:
• Does your company understand how much levy you pay and what you can spend it on?
• How did you decide what to prioritise spending on?
• How do you make an informed decision about which providers to work with?
• Has the Levy meant you have increased or reduced the number of Apprentices in your business?
• Are you using the Levy to put employees through new Standards or Degree Level Apprenticeships?
• Is there enough choice of quality providers locally?
• Have you had any difficulties filling your Apprenticeship vacancies?
