New research shows increasing interest in apprenticeships

05 Aug 2021

New research published by UCAS shows that more young people are interested in apprenticeship options. Analysis from The Careers & Enterprise Company was featured in TES and FE News, highlighting the role that Careers Leaders in schools and colleges played in making this happen.

John Yarham, Deputy Chief Executive at the Careers & Enterprise Company, the national body for careers education, said: “more young people are considering apprenticeship opportunities, and this is in no small part due to the phenomenal job that Careers Leaders in schools and colleges are doing week in, week out, supported by a growing number of employers.

“Young people knowing about apprenticeships means more young people finding their best next step out of education and into the world of work. This means more students going into fulfilling careers and taking the path that’s right for them. Making sure every school and college works with apprenticeship providers and showcases the high quality, high impact opportunities available couldn’t be more important.”
