Apprenticeships Pay Structure New!

Decision maker:  Cabinet

Decision due:   12 Sep 2018

Lead officer:  Paula Warrilow

Notice of proposed decision first published: 30/08/2018

This decision will be taken under urgency procedures.

Reason for urgency:
The new arrangements and funding for apprenticeships has required the Council to rethink its approach to recruiting apprentices. In order to minimise the possibility of part of the Council’s levy being forfeited, it has been necessary to quickly put in place a new pay structure, to sit alongside the Council’s existing framework. Following consultation with unions and the LGA, approval is now sought for the proposals to ensure new apprentices can be recruited to fall into line with the start of the new academic year in September and maximise the benefit of the apprenticeship levy to the Council and local people.

Anticipated restriction: Open  -
