PDS launches a new Post-Levy Managed Service Solution

An easier way to manage the Levy in your organisation

At PDS Group, we can help you implement the Levy programme whilst also fully supporting your organisation with our unique Managed Service Solution. We can take away the hassle of managing the levy process and leave you free to define and measure the outcomes required to transform your organisational effectiveness.

How is your business preparing for the Levy?

With less than a year to go before the Apprenticeship Levy comes into force, companies are advised to start planning their apprenticeship provision if they have not done so already.

If your business is eligible to pay the levy, the earlier you prepare, the easier the transition will be.

PDS can help...

  • Support your skills development strategy
  • Manage your specialist providers
  • Work with you to manage both the performance and financial
    transactions for you through the Digital Apprenticeship Service (DAS)
  • Design and deliver a consistent approach to apprenticeship recruitment
  • Develop levy management plans
  • Optimise operational structure whilst maximising the levy spend

How the Apprenticeship Levy Works

From 6th April 2017, employers with a wage bill of more than £3m will have to pay a 0.5 per cent levy to fund apprenticeships. This will affect employers in all sectors. The aim is to raise 3bn a year to meet a target of three million new apprenticeships by 2020.

With a clear focus on developing the UK’s skills and improving long-term productivity, the Government is committed to increasing the quantity and quality of Apprenticeships whilst also putting control of funding firmly in the hands of employers.
