SGS College are hosting an Apprenticeship Levy Forum on June 1st on behalf of the Skills Funding Agency (SFA) and the Department for Business, Innovation and Skills (BIS).

On April 21st, the Government published guidance for employers on the Apprenticeship Levy. The levy will be implemented from April 2017 and all employers with a payroll in excess of £3million will be in scope for levy payments which will support an increase in the number and quality of apprenticeships. The levy applies to all sectors and both private and public organisations.

SGS College are hosting an Apprenticeship Levy Forum on June 1st on behalf of the Skills Funding Agency (SFA) and the Department for Business, Innovation and Skills (BIS).

This is the first of three national events. Both the SFA and BIS will be represented by senior directors, so this is an important opportunity to hear directly from the decision-makers regarding implementation of the Apprenticeship Levy and how it will affect your business. This is also an important part of the consultation process and BIS and the SFA will be welcoming comments and questions from employers. A series of presentations and a question-and-answer session will be followed by a series of break-out groups. This will be the first opportunity for employers to see and try the Digital Apprenticeship Service.

Sara-Jane Watkins, Principal of SGS College, commented; “we are thrilled to be able to host this event on behalf of the Skills Funding Agency and the Department for Business, Innovation and Skills. The location of our WISE campus, close to the M4/M5 interchange and within walking distance of Bristol Parkway station makes this an ideal venue as it is easily accessible to employers from across the midlands and the South West. We are looking forward to hosting our guests on June 1st at this free event.”

The Forum will be at SGS WISE Campus, New Road, Stoke Gifford, Bristol, BS34 8LP.
