The way the government funds apprenticeships in England changed in April 2017 when the Apprenticeship Levy was introduced. All employers with a wage bill of over £3 million a year have to contribute 0.5% of their total pay bill towards apprenticeship training (minus a £15,000 annual levy allowance).

FIS is seeking to understand the level of uptake, awareness and understanding of the Apprenticeship Levy specific to the construction industry one year after its launch. With this in mind we have completed a very short survey, which we would appreciate your response to. It should take no longer than 2 minutes to complete.

Apprenticeship Levy – have your say

We are collating responses from FIS members and all wider construction industry CITB levy payers registered in England. Your response will provide evidence of the current undertakings of the Apprenticeship Levy. The results will be published on our website at the end of June 2018 and feature in number of publications and online news platforms.

All responses will be held in confidence and under all FIS data protection policies. This survey will close on Friday 15 June 2018 at 5pm.
