Levy breakfast seminar- Reading

As the second anniversary of the levy has come and gone HMRC are now looking carefully at the unused balances in the levy payers accounts with a view to clawing back some of the funds. Many firms who waited to see how the new apprenticeship standards would be received have only just started to tap into their levy reserves. This is the time for them to determine how best to use the funds to benefit their staff and their business.
An effective finance apprenticeship programme should cover a valuable professional qualification (AAT, ACCA, ACA or CIMA) but should also support the apprentices in developing valuable workplace skills such as leadership, high level communication skills and business awareness. The apprenticeship provider and the employer should work together to support the development of these skills throughout the programme. Apprenticeships are suitable to school leavers or graduates as well as to existing staff who wish to develop their skills.
At First Intuition we have worked with a number of levy payers to design and implement training programmes for their finance teams which utilise the levy pot and roll out a higher level of skills training for their team. Each firm has slightly different training needs and has different support requirements, so it is important to get this right from the start. The success of an apprenticeship programme depends upon setting off on the right footing and working in partnership with the employer and the firm.
Our levy breakfast will cover topics such as:
- What training can be covered by the levy
- How the Digital Apprenticeship Service works
- Key considerations in designing a programme
- FAQ’s about designing an apprenticeship programme
- Levy fund transfers
Who should attend?
This event is suitable for anyone who wishes to know more about launching an apprenticeship programme in their firm. This will be of interest to anyone who is responsible for training the finance team in their firm.
