Construction Learner of the Month: Hugh MorrisHugh Morris has been awarded Learner of the Month in February at the STC Group. Our tutors were faced with a hard decision to select just one from all of their wonderful learners.
"Hugh has given the same work attitude throughout three trades. He was very good at bricklaying and constantly offered his support to other learners on the programme. Very productive & great team player."
Paul Spence- Construction Tutor
Well done Hugh we're all very proud of what you've achieved!
Levy ServicesIf you’re an employer with a pay bill over £3m each year, you must pay the apprenticeship levy from 6 April 2017. It is payable by employers in the UK at the rate of 0.5% of the payroll cost through PAYE alongside Income Tax and National Insurance.
The levy will not affect the way you fund training for apprentices who started an apprenticeship programme before 1 May 2017. You’ll need to carry on funding training for these apprentices under the terms and conditions that were in place at the time the apprenticeship started.
Employers who aren’t connected to another company or charity will have an Apprenticeship Levy allowance of £15,000 each year.
STC can support you through our Employer Levy service.
