26/07/2019 - Industry calls for apprenticeship levy payers to be able to fund wider skills training from their levy cash
Make UK survey shows that 95% of manufacturers say levy must be changed to an employer-led system to deliver the skills of the future

Key findings:

• 95% of manufacturers say the Apprenticeship Levy must be changed, just 5% want the Government to keep it as it is
• This level of dissatisfaction figure is the same figure as last year -deep frustration with levy remains
• Levy paying companies are struggling to spend their Levy with just 19% of companies spending all their Levy last year
• A lack of training provision, apprenticeship standards and quality candidates are blocking companies from taking on more apprentices and as a result over half of manufacturers now want to use their levy contributions for non-apprenticeship training across wider skills
• One in five manufacturers want to scrap the Levy and one in five wish improvements to be made
• Almost one in five (17%) want government to focus on creating more apprenticeships in skills shortage areas and one in five (18%) say ensuring quality among apprenticeships is essential
• 65% of manufacturers recruited an engineering apprentice in the past 12 months
• 73% of manufacturers plan to recruit an engineering apprentice in the next 12 months
• But 11% of manufacturers say they have delayed or cancelled an engineering apprenticeship directly because of the Levy

Britain’s manufacturers are calling for an urgent rethink to Government’s Apprenticeship Levy to make access to funding more flexible so that industry can develop the essential skills of the future.
