Our leading research into apprenticeships

Education and Employer’s report: Teenage Apprenticeships:¬†Converting awareness to recruitment investigates why the number of school leavers becoming apprentices has flat-lined.

The report, funded by the Commercial Education Trust, revealed that the negative perceptions around apprenticeships among students, teachers and parents hampers take-up and highlights how more needs to be done to ensure equal guidance for both academic and vocational pathways and challenge views about the suitably of different apprenticeships across genders.

The report demonstrates the need for students to have the opportunity to meet employers (including former or current apprentices) in school and for teachers to be given further advice and information on apprenticeships.
