New guide to degree apprenticeships published for employers

Guide to degree apprenticeships

A new guide has been published for employers to help them receive information on degree apprenticeships.

The digital publication, A Guide to Degree Apprenticeships for Employers, was launched by careers advice company Prospects with the aim of providing employers with information and guidance on the Apprenticeship Levy, which is set to be introduced on 6th April 2017.


The guide, which is now available to download, features information from the Skills Funding Agency on what the introduction of the Apprenticeship Levy will mean for businesses and also provides employers with advice on degree apprenticeships.

Businesses can learn about who the Apprenticeship Levy will affect, as well as how it will work and what amount employers who are eligible to pay will be required to contribute. The guide also lists the benefits of the levy and contains information on how employers can benefit from degree apprenticeships.

The launch of the guide comes after research from City & Guilds showed a lack of awareness of the levy among employers, with over 30 per cent of employers that are eligible to pay it being unaware that it will soon be introduced.


Commenting on the new guide, Prospects Marketing Director Sarah Brookes said: “Interest in apprenticeships has soared over the last couple of years, but there is still low awareness of the levy among some employers, both big and small. This guide is intended to provide an introduction as to what the levy may mean as well as explore the benefits of degree apprenticeships in particular.”
