Changes to Apprenticeships – December Update

You will be aware from previous communications that the Government are making changes to Apprenticeships. This communication provides you with further information on how this will impact on schools as employers, including what we know about how different types of schools will be affected by the Levy, how our plans for apportioning the Levy costs and implementing the new system are progressing and how schools will be able to use the Levy funds for apprenticeships. We also provide an update on the Public Sector Apprenticeship Target.

We are expecting further Government Levy guidance before Christmas. We have also been advised that the DfE and LGA (Local Government Association) met on Wednesday 7th December and we anticipate further guidance in due course. As soon as we have further information we will let you know.
