  2. Apprenticeships in England Apprenticeships are the centre-piece of the Government’s approach on vocational training Ambition is to create a vocational pathway of equal value to that of higher education England has had a long history of Apprenticeships, with first mentions dating back to the 13th century (though data and definitions are sketchy!) Recent successive Governments’ support has reinvigorated the programme …with funding at around £1.4bn last year; £1.5bn this year

  3. Apprenticeships in England Straddles Dept for Education and Dept for Business Innovation and Skills (16-18 and 19+ learners) – overseen by the Apprenticeship Unit representing both Departments An expanding programme with 850,000 apprentices on 250 Apprenticeships programmes in 2011/12 Modern, online application, matching and support tools A programme for all ages (16+) and increasingly at all academic levels National Apprenticeship Service for operational delivery

Apprenticeships - Funding Funding from Government for Training costs = 100% age 16-18 Training costs = 50% age 19+* The Apprentice’s wages are paid by their employer Each apprentice must have a registered training provider (which can also be their employer) There are 1,100 providers in England Each apprentice must have an employer and be paid. About 170,000 workplaces in England had apprentices in 2010/11 Government funded apprentices must study one of 200 Apprenticeship ‘qualification framework’ areas. Frameworks are at European qualification framework levels 2, 3, 4 or 5 5

  8. What Employers say…… 80% of Employers with Apprentices say that they make the workplace more productive. 88% of Employers with Apprentices believe that Apprenticeships lead to a more motivated and satisfied workforce 83% of Employers with Apprentices rely on them to provide their skilled workers of the future 81% of Consumers would prefer to usa acompany that employe Apprentices

  9. What Ministers say Ministers have identified 3 key priorities for the programme: 1 - to drive up standards and safeguard quality to meet the evolving needs of employers and learners 2 - to make it as easy as possible to recruit an apprentice, speeding up processes and cutting red tape 3 - to give most focus in expanding future opportunities where returns and benefits are greatest, including younger people (16-24), smaller firms, some sectors, and Advanced and Higher Apprenticeships […and made clear that Apprenticeships are not the answer for those with basic skills and employability problems further from job readiness]
