Apprenticeships: How to ease the 20% off-the-job challenge

If you’re a business with a payroll of over £3m, you will have been paying 0.5% of your annual payroll into your Levy ‘pot’. The money you have paid will soon expire. If you don’t use it, you will lose it. Join this webinar, in partnership with ICS Learn, for some top tips and guidance on how to make the apprenticeship levy work for you.

Out of the £1.39bn apprenticeship levy available, only £108m has been collected to fund apprenticeship programmes, according to a recent Open University report

If you’re a business with a payroll of over £3m, you will have been paying 0.5% of your annual payroll into your Levy ‘pot’ since it was introduced in 2017. The money you have paid will expire 24 months after it enters your digital account unless you spend it on apprenticeship training. If you don’t use it, you will lose it.

One of the main reasons organisations have not spent the apprenticeship levy has been the worry managers have regarding the 20% of time they ‘lose’ a staff member to training – a core requirement of all apprenticeship programmes. But the 20% rule doesn’t have to mean losing your apprentice for a certain amount of hours per week, rather it means they get time set aside every week to develop. And if you make sure they spend that time wisely it could benefit your business in the long term.

Join this webinar, in partnership with ICS Learn, for some top tips and guidance on how to make the apprenticeship levy work for you.

In this webinar you will learn:

  • How to choose a training style that fits your needs, whether face-to-face or online
  • How to turn the levy into a strategic advantage
  • How online training can fulfil the 20% off-the-job learning requirement with minimum time away from the office
  • How to set a flexible schedule that delivers results when and where you need them
