Westminster Employment Forum

Funding apprenticeships in England - supporting employers, meeting demand and the future of the apprenticeship levy

July 2018

This seminar assessed the further steps that can be taken to support the delivery of apprenticeships.

Delegates discussed the way forward in the context of reforms to apprenticeship funding introduced last year - including key concerns from education providers and employers - and what more might be done to increase engagement.

Further sessions assessed the impact of the apprenticeship levy following its first full year of implementation, its contribution towards realising the Government aim of creating 3 million apprenticeships by 2020, and whether the levy should be reformed into a more general training levy.

Shortly after every Westminster Employment Forum seminar, a briefing document is produced. This is distributed to all delegates on the day as well as to our policymaker contacts in government, and to stakeholders more widely.

A seminar publication provides a timely record of proceedings, and acts as a guide to the latest thinking on current policy issues for those unable to be at the event.
