ECA responds to Autumn Statement NI announcement

‘The abolition of employer National Insurance contributions for those businesses employing people under the age of 21 from April 2015 and apprentices aged under 25 from April 2016 is welcome. It will lessen the financial burden on employers who train apprentices in our industry and across the economy and we hope it will continue regardless of who wins next year’s General Election. Today’s politicians seem very aware of the importance of apprenticeships to young people, employers, and the economy and hopefully the policy agenda in the future will reflect this and support the role of apprenticeships in driving forward UK plc.’
