ESCO Seminar & Workshop Programme Apprenticeship Levy – how your company can benefit!
19 May 2016
The Apprenticeship Levy launches in the 2017-18 tax year, with all employers obliged to pay 0.5% of their total payroll costs above £3M, into the levy fund. All companies, irrespective of size, will have the opportunity to access the levy fund to contribute to the funding of their own apprenticeship programme. If companies do not engage in apprenticeships, they will not receive any return for their contribution to the levy fund.
ESCO, the sector council for the electrical and electronic industries and its association members, BEAMA, GAMBICA, NMI and techUK, have developed a strategy to assist their member companies to use the levy funds for appropriate apprenticeships.
This seminar and workshop programme will outline the opportunities for companies, the role of ESCO and the need for industry collaboration. Most important, it will allow company representatives to influence the development of the ESCO apprenticeship service.
The planned outcomes will include the establishment of a specific apprenticeship task force of companies and a delivery roadmap agreed between industry, ESCO and the BIS civil servants.
