Analysis of Apprenticeship Levy Consultation
In October 2015 the Department for Business, Innovation and Skills (BIS) conducted a consultation on the Government’s plans to introduce an apprenticeship levy designed to encourage more employers to invest in apprenticeships and support the achievement of the target of 3 million apprenticeships by 2020. CFE collected and analysed over 750 responses to the consultation on behalf of BIS. Responses to the consultation were submitted in a variety of formats including via an online survey designed and administered BIS, email and in hard copy.
CFE inputted (where necessary) and collated the responses. The primarily qualitative data was coded thematically so that issues and trends could be quantified and analysed statistically to give an indication of scale. The findings were presented in a report to BIS to inform the further development of the levy policy.
