Drawing on interviews with members of the National Centre, this report considers the emerging effects that the introduction of the Apprenticeship Levy in 2017 is having on employer and provider practices including addressing and promoting social mobility.

The report is broken down into three sections:

  • The impacts of the Levy on both the talent strategies of employers as well as efforts to deliver social mobility aspirations
  • Emerging challenges that are preventing the positive impacts of the Levy from being realised
  • Opportunities that our members hope might be achieved in the future as the Levy beds in and the landscape settles
