You may be aware that an apprenticeship levy on employers will come in to force in April 2017. The levy is set at a rate of 0.5% of an employer’s total pay bill. All employers have an initial grant of £15,000; this means that, in most cases, only employers with a pay bill of £3 million or greater will be affected.
To help employers effectively respond to the levy, Southwark Council will be holding a breakfast workshop on the morning of Monday 23 January 2017, free of charge for all Southwark employers.
The workshop will provide a thorough overview of the levy and apprenticeships generally, so whether you have just a very basic awareness of the levy or are already considering levy implementation plans there should be useful learning points to take away
The workshop will be supported by training providers from the Southwark Apprenticeship Standard training provider directory to ensure the most current levy information is available. You will also be able to speak to Southwark’s Local Economy Team to find out about free business support and recruitment services available to your business through the council.
