Apprenticeships in the UK are an ongoing success story

“Apprenticeships are one of the greatest success stories of the decade,” said the Right Honourable Robert Halfon MP, Minister of State for Apprenticeships and Skills, during a recent interview, “It is fantastic to know that 90 percent of people that do apprenticeships go on to further work or education. This really is something to shout about.”

He also talked about the new apprenticeship levy, which is due to come into force this month. The levy means that £2.5 billion will be invested in apprenticeships by 2019-20 - double the amount spent in 2010-11 – ensuring that more people will have access to better quality training schemes and that employers will benefit from the influx of a more highly skilled workforce.

The Rt. Hon. Mr Halfon explained that apprenticeships participation currently stands at nearly 900,000, which is the highest figure on record. With the arrival of the new levy and the upcoming launch of both the Institute for Apprenticeships and the Register of Apprenticeship Training Providers, that figure is undoubtedly expected to increase substantially.
