Kaplan Financial and the Association of Accounting Technicians (AAT) and have commissioned IER to undertake research into the impact of the apprenticeship levy on accountancy apprenticeships.
This research will examine the impact of the apprenticeship reforms introduced by the Government in May 2017. It is examining the impact of these reforms on both employers’ and individual trainees’ decisions to participate in apprenticeships and other training programmes. It will help inform decision makers of the true effects of the reforms, and help shape the future development and delivery of apprenticeships and other training programmes.
The study will include interviews with employers and learners, and explore the benefits and costs of undertaking an apprenticeship.
