Training survey

The success of the Apprenticeship Levy is splitting manufacturing opinion according to a new survey. The In-Comm Training Barometer revealed that just 55% of manufacturers believe it is working. Of the 71 respondents, just over a fifth said they had taken on apprentices as a result of the Levy – a small number, but still an increase in the face of an annual decline in the number of apprenticeships commencing over the past 12 months. The results are due to be presented to Anne Milton, Minister for Skills and Apprenticeships, during a special delegation to Westminster involving 50 employers and apprentices.
