Steve Radley, Director of Policy at CITB says:
“This summer, we set up a new employer-led Levy Working Party to scope the options for how the CITB Levy can work alongside the Apprenticeship Levy, towards a new CITB Levy Order for 2018.
“Now we have further details on the Apprenticeship Levy, the Working Party can further shape ideas for how the CITB Levy can work for industry in the long term.
For 2017, CITB has agreed a temporary Transition Package with industry, for firms paying both levies that year. Under this arrangement these firms will be able to claim CITB funding at an enhanced rate, capped at their level of Apprenticeship Levy contribution. These funds will primarily come from the organisation’s efficiency savings.”
