Are you ready for the new Trailblazers apprenticeships?
By 2020 the government aims to have achieved 3 million apprenticeship starts. Their commitment to this target has led to a proactive approach in improving the quality and quantity of apprenticeships delivered. Amongst these improvements is the introduction of the new standards in apprenticeships.
From April 2017 a levy will also be introduced. The levy applies to UK employers with an annual pay bill of more than £3 million. Employers who fall into this category will be required to pay 0.5% of payroll costs into a levy.
