It was announced earlier this month that Cranfield University’s supply chain management (SCM) Master’s course joined the group of higher education options able to benefit from the UK’s Apprenticeship Levy. Established in April 2017, the Levy requires all UK employers making over $3.9mn per year to pay 0.5% of their annual paybill. The resultant funds are used to support the Government’s policy of “boosting productivity by investing in human capital”, according to Her Majesty’s Revenue and Customs.

The policy statement continues, announcing the Government “has committed to an additional 3mn apprenticeship starts in England by 2020. The levy will help to deliver new apprenticeships and it will support quality training by putting employers at the centre of the system”.

Founded in 1956 and located in Bedford, Cranfield University’s School of Management is the UK’s leading accreditor of Supply Chain Management Master’s qualifications. The college was ranked 1st outside the US, and 11th overall by Gartner subsidiary, SCM World.
