The government has completed a major reform of apprenticeships. From 6th April 2017 employers with a payroll of over £3 million each year have had to pay the apprenticeship levy.

The government has made changes to the way apprenticeship funding works, which includes the introduction of the levy, the online apprenticeship service and the new ‘co-investment’ rate to support employers who don’t pay the levy. Additionally, the current framework has been replaced with new standards developed by employers. These standards are more tailored and specific to the housing sector.

Apprenticeships are a devolved policy. This means that authorities in each of the UK nations manage their own apprenticeship programmes, including how funding is spent on apprenticeship training.

This follow-up roundtable, facilitated by Vanessa Howell, Head of Professional Standards at CIH, will explore:

  • What this means for the sector
  • What the levy can and can’t be used for
  • The new apprenticeship housing standards and how they are different
  • How to deliver the new standards
  • How to access the funding
  • Sharing good practice across the sector and lessons learnt
  • Opportunities for networking
