There is also the introduction of The Apprenticeship Levy, since April 2017, relating to any employer with a PAYE bill of over £3m per annum. If you fail to spend all of your Levy, the unspent amount will either be lost, or can be used by any of your competitors.

About me

There are almost 800,000 young people aged 16-24 in the UK who are not in employment, education or training. Research shows that this can have a detrimental effect on physical and mental health.
We believe apprenticeships should be prioritised as a way of empowering young people to build great careers, without first having to pursue university education and absorb increasing levels of debt.
I had no idea what I wanted to do when I left school. I went to university like everyone else I knew. Majority of my friends would say they could have attained the same job and had less debt, if they’d had any means of getting straight into work.
Bright Futures and the introduction of the Apprenticeship Levy will help change this for the next generation.
With 7 years' experience, recruiting & advising across top investment banks globally, I'm both passionate and equipped to help solve this issue.
