AELP Call for the Removal of Levy Funding for Level 6 and 7 and Degree Apprenticeships

AELP Call for the Removal of Levy Funding for Level 6 and 7 and Degree Apprenticeships

You will be aware that AELP, using Ofsted statements to support its arguments, has called for the removal of levy funding for level 6 and 7 and Degree Apprenticeships.

UVAC responded quickly and has produced a response outlining why from a productivity and social mobility perspective AELP’s proposal makes little sense. You can see my article in FE Week here.

There is no doubt AELP has produced useful support materials and runs some very effective special interest groups. AELP’s chief executive wrote to his HE members only after his proposal became public (citing IT problems for not doing so sooner) with this statement. HEIs who are AELP members may wish to raise any concerns regarding AELP’s position with AELP directly.

UVAC, as a HE owned sector organisation, working with Trailblazers and partners will be outlining the value of Degree Apprenticeships to ministers and the Treasury. We will also be developing proposals outlining how to manage any potential overspend with the Apprenticeship levy.
