The Skills Funding Agency, the Government Agency whose job it is to fund and regulate Adult Further Education and skills in England, has just published the Apprenticeship success rates for 2010-11.
The average success rate for all providers throughout the country is 75.5% which is an increase on last year’s 73.9%.
These figures represent the success of learners undertaking Apprenticeship programmes throughout England in a variety of occupational areas, from engineering to hairdressing.
The vast majority of learners undertake Apprenticeship programmes in the workplace and have achieved the qualification whilst performing their job role. “To complete an Apprenticeship qualification whilst at work is a significant achievement and requires discipline, hard work and time management” says John Herman Managing Director of Intec Business Colleges.
Intec has been delivering work based vocational qualifications for the past 30 years and works with a range of companies throughout the country. Currently Intec is responsible for over 2,600 learners who are undertaking Apprenticeships and achieving success rates in excess of 85%, which is ten percentage points above the national average.
Mr Herman adds “young people have had some bad press over recent months but the recent GCSE and A level results together with these Apprenticeship success rates show that in general young people have a desire to succeed and to pursue a worthwhile career path”.
