Posted: Tuesday, 23 August 2016 @ 11:14

New statistics published in October show a continued increase in the number of people taking up Apprenticeships. The provisional data shows that for the full 2011/12 academic year (August 2011 to July 2012) 502,500 people started an Apprenticeship.

Apprenticeship starts rose from 457,200 in 2010/11, at all levels, with particular strong growth at advanced and higher levels.

“These figures show that Apprenticeship programmes are very popular amongst young people and employers. This is a great success story which suggests that more people than ever are engaged in and value vocational training in the workplace.

This level of activity is building a solid base of training in the workplace which can only benefit the UK economy as a whole”
