Skills minister John Hayes made the announcement following a review led by the Employer Reference Group, the Confederation of British Industry (CBI) and several large companies, which called for a simplification in the way apprentices and temporary workers are taken on.
He revealed that firms will also receive better guidance to help them manage the recruitment, training and assessment of staff more efficiently and cost effectively.
"For far too long, too many businesses have been put off by overly complex procedures and unnecessary layers of paperwork. We've worked with business to cut bureaucracy and ensure the benefits for employers, learners and the economy are maximised," he added.
The report was welcomed by Susan Anderson, CBI director for education and skills policy, who said cutting bureaucracy will support even more businesses to become involved, with the recommendations "setting out the right path" for reform.
