The IMI has launched its new Apprenticeship Standard (Trailblazer) programme for motor vehicle service and maintenance technicians working in the light vehicle sector.
The Government has released more details of the apprenticeship levy, but there has been no movement on the April start date despite industry objections.
From April, businesses with annual payroll costs of £3 million or more will pay 0.5% of their annual payroll bill, minus an allowance of £15,000, into a special account.
The Government is pressing ahead with the introduction of its apprenticeship levy in April 2017 despite calls from industry to delay its introduction.
The Department for Education (DfE) has confirmed to AM it will release more detailed information about its apprenticeship levy this Friday.
The NFDA has backed calls for a delay to the imposition of the government’s proposed apprenticeship levy, citing “economic uncertainty” following the UK’s Brexit decision.
