Further to the recent consultation on the Government's proposed Apprenticeship Levy, a number of meetings are being held between CITB, Build UK and Nick Boles, Minister of State jointly for the Department for Business, Innovation and Skills and the Department for Education.

In addition, Build UK Trade Association Member ATLAS has been invited to meet BIS officials to discuss the impact of the proposals on one of the specialist sectors within construction.   

In order to maintain a consistent response from the industry, which has been well received so far, we would be grateful if you could let Sarah.Wicks@BuildUK.org know of any other meetings you have with BIS or other Government departments on this issue.
ATLAS is happy to share the issues it will be raising with BIS and to incorporate any additional points affecting other specialist sectors and please contact Sarah.Garry@atlas.org.uk, copied to Sarah.Wicks@BuildUK.org, for further information.
