Apprenticeship Levy Will Support Better Paid Jobs
TUC General Secretary Frances O'Grady
Commenting on the start today (Thursday) of the apprenticeship levy, which will fund an expansion in apprenticeships, TUC General Secretary Frances O'Grady said:

"It's good news for workers, who will have more opportunities to gain the skills needed for better paid jobs. And it's good news for businesses, as their productivity will improve with a higher skilled workforce.

"The government must now look at ways to make sure that all apprenticeships are of high quality. And we need action to improve access to apprenticeships for groups of workers including women, disabled people and Black, Asian and Minority Ethnic workers.

"Unionlearn, the TUC and trade unions across the UK are looking forward to working with employers to make the expansion of apprenticeships a success."
