If your organisation had a pot of money that could either be used to fund apprenticeships or paid to the tax man, how would you choose to spend it?

This week on the Good Practice Podcast, Ross D is joined by two colleagues from Emerald Group, Mike Shaw and Fiona Allison, to discuss the Apprenticeship Levy. We cover:

  • what the Levy is and how it works
  • the extent to which L&D has failed to take advantage of the Levy to fund apprenticeships
  • what it's like to be an apprentice, balancing work and study
