 Businesses struggling with apprenticeship levy

Businesses are becoming increasingly critical of the controversial apprenticeship levy. Many are complaining the funds raised do not cover training costs and the levy has, in effect, become just another business tax. Other problems listed especially by SMEs are that it is too difficult to navigate, and that training programmes have not been certified so apprentices cannot be sent on the required courses. EEF described the situation as being “at breaking point”, as some employers have stopped training while others have stopped recruiting.
