Our reaction to the Institute for Apprenticeships board

The CBI has responded to the appointment of the Institute for Apprenticeships (IfA) board.

Our reaction to the Institute for Apprenticeships board

Neil Carberry, CBI Director for People and Skills policy, said:

‘It’s encouraging to see that Government recognises the importance of strong business voices to successfully deliver high-quality skills training. The new board delivers on the promise that the new Institute for Apprenticeships will be employer-led.

“With the new IfA team taking shape and the levy being introduced in April, it's time to make sure the system really works for learners and business. Government must be ready to adapt the design of the system on advice from the IfA as we transition - addressing both unexpected issues and the longstanding concerns businesses have about the design of the new system.’’
