Date: Tuesday 28th June 2016
Venue: ETC Venues, 1 Drummond Gate, London SW1V 2QQ
On Tuesday 28th June, ESCO and its member association members are holding a one day seminar and workshop programme on the Apprenticeship Levy and how your company can turn a defacto tax into a funding opportunity.
The Apprenticeship Levy launches in the 2017-18 tax year, with all employers obliged to pay 0.5% of their total payroll costs above £3M, into the levy fund. Both contributing and non-contributing companies will have the opportunity to access the levy fund to contribute to the funding of approved apprenticeship schemes. If companies do not engage in apprenticeships, they will not receive any return for their contribution to the levy fund.
ESCO and its association members, BEAMA, GAMBICA, NMI and techUK, have developed a strategy to assist their member companies to use the levy funds for appropriate apprenticeships.
The one day seminar and workshop will outline the opportunities for companies, the role of ESCO and the need for industry collaboration. Most important, it will allow company representatives to influence the development of the new ESCO apprenticeship service.
ESCO members and their members can attend the seminar and workshop at a discounted rate of £100 plus VAT while the event is also open to non-members at the rate of £125 plus VAT.
