To ask the Scottish Government whether all the revenue raised by the Apprenticeship Levy will be invested in learning and training infrastructure and initiatives.
Answered by: Jamie Hepburn 30 November 2016
Ultimately, as with all areas of devolved responsibility, it will be for Scottish Ministers to decide how to use Levy funding as part of the wider Scottish block grant.
We have committed to developing a distinctly Scottish approach to apprenticeships and wider skills development and to drive closer engagement with industry in our efforts to enhance productivity and inclusive economic growth.
