Apprenticeship Levy Workshop

Walsall College is inviting employers to a free workshop it is holding to get them up to speed with all the facts surrounding the Apprenticeship Levy.

The event will take place on Friday 11th March, 8am – 10am at the college’s £11m business and sports Hub, and will help employers to gain a better understanding of how the levy will affect them and how they could benefit from it.

From April 2017, large employers from both the private and public sectors will have to pay into the government’s new Apprenticeship Levy, which is a mandatory tax that will apply to companies with a UK payroll bill over £3m per annum.

The workshop will include a presentation delivered by James Norris, Assistant Principal at Walsall College, and Dan Baker, Employer and Delivery Services Manager at The Skills Funding Agency (SFA), followed by an opportunity to network.

Walsall College’s experienced Apprenticeship Team will also be on hand at the event to talk to companies about the ways in which they could use the levy as an opportunity for their organisations.

Free coffee, tea and breakfast sandwiches will be available to all attendees.

Employers can reserve their place on this free workshop by visiting
