On 4 April 2017, the EEF hosted a webinar for MTA members, aimed at ensuring employer readiness for the Apprenticeship Levy that came into effect on 6 April 2017. Companies both below and above the £3million paybill threshold for the Levy are eligible for Government funding for apprenticeship training. The MTA encourages its members to employ apprentices to continue to bring new talent into the industry, therefore helping to address the current skills gap the industry faces. You can view the webinar here.
The MTA offers Apprenticeship Grants of £2,000, a limited number of interest-free Apprenticeship Loans of £10,000 and Training Grants of up to £500. For more information please visit https://www.mta.org.uk/services/grants-apprenticeships or email email@example.com
