CMI response to the Apprenticeship Levy reform package announcement

Monday 18 March 2024

In response to the government's announcement setting out a package of reforms to the Apprenticeship Levy, Anthony Painter, Director of Policy and External Affairs at CMI, said:

Apprenticeships are a critical investment in future growth and productivity. By enabling more support for small businesses and young people the Government is extending their contribution to future skills even wider. High-quality, work-based learning is critical right across the economy. Levy funding is an important component of that investment and, indeed, we should be looking at how we extend investment even further.

Leaders and managers need all the possible tools at their disposal to develop the workforce of the future. These announcements contribute to that. The best economies have highly skilled managers and a highly skilled workforce across all ages and all sectors.
