Apprenticeships provide an alternate pathway to for young people to get into the labour market.
The introduction of the apprenticeship levy makes sense for both business and employees. Apprenticeships allow young people to achieve a professional qualification faster, and with less debt, than those who go to university. And for businesses with a payroll of over £3m, which pay the levy, they have the opportunity to draw down their levy payments to fund apprenticeships.
Many of our charities, such as Resurgo and City Gateway support disadvantaged young people to access apprenticeships and jobs.
