House of Commons Apprenticeships report

The House of Commons Education Committee, have recently published their report, The apprenticeships ladder of opportunity: quality not quantity.

The House of Commons Education Committee, have recently published their report, The apprenticeships ladder of opportunity: quality not quantity.

The report identifies two main problems with apprenticeships, these are quality and social justice. The report found that not enough apprentices are getting the high-quality training they deserve and a lot of people, particularly the disadvantaged, are not being given the support they need to pursue an apprenticeship and get on in life.

While it recognises the good work being done by many FE colleges and independent training providers, it calls for clearer oversight of apprenticeship training and assessment, and a tougher approach to poor quality training.

Furthermore, the report recommends a range of measures, including the creation of more bursaries, increases to the apprenticeship minimum wage, and increased incentives for small and medium-sized businesses and social enterprises to take on apprentices.
