Issue details

City of York Council – Apprenticeship Levy Transfer Strategy

Purpose of Report: To recommend that the council commits to transfer any of its unspent annual apprenticeship levy funds, up to a maximum of 20%, to local employers to support the city’s economic recovery. This will ensure that York benefits from a reinvestment of any unused council apprenticeship levy funding to support local priorities rather than any unused levy funding being lost to the city.

It also suggests the framework through which local employers (micro, SMEs and VCSE) can apply to receive a transfer of the council’s unspent levy funds to support new apprenticeship starts within their organisation.

The Executive Member will be asked to consider and approve the strategy.
