Apprenticeship Levy Consultancy
We provide consultancy on how the automotive aftermarket can benefit from the Apprentice Levy scheme.
Apprenticeships offer a route to harness fresh new talent, however, the government’s drive to reach their objective of three million apprenticeships across all UK sectors with the launch of the 2017 Apprenticeship Levy has, so far, fallen short.
To date, only 8% of the funding, paid in by companies with a payroll bill of over £3m, has been utilised and put back into developing apprenticeships. Critically, if unused, 24 months after the Levy is paid, these funds will “expire” and be reclaimed by the government, rather than being redistributed.
A vast amount of the UK’s independent garages and workshops fall under the £3 million threshold, and are largely unaware of the opportunity to tap into this pot of money. Too many write it off as another stealth tax when it could really help their drive to recruit new technicians, but they need to know how to approach it effectively. Our Autotech Apprentice division can provide consultancy to businesses unsure of how to benefit from the levy scheme.
