FDF Response

FDF response to the Apprenticeship Levy survey

Back to competitiveness responses index

August

FDF has responded to the Department for Education's guidance on how apprenticeships will be funded in England under the Apprenticeship levy.

Our response acknowledges:

  • additional burdens created by the forthcoming EU exit
  • a delay to the levy's introduction – due to start in April 2017
  • urging the government to reconsider the funding rates for Food and Drink Engineering Maintenance and Food Technology Apprenticeship standards
  • the need for the levy to reflect the need of UK-wide employers operating across borders
