5.          Apprenticeship Levy Transfer Strategy (CYC) 

(Pages 41 - 50)


The Executive Member will consider a report which recommends that the council promotes its apprenticeship levy transfer service to: support micro, SME, public sector and VCSE organisations to benefit from any of the council’s unallocated levy funds, up to a maximum of 20% (threshold for reviewing allocated funds) and, encourage other local levy paying businesses and public sector organisations to do similar.  This will help to ensure that any unused apprenticeship levy funding is reinvested in York to support local priorities, rather than it being lost to the city.
