Get in, Go Far

Get in, Go Far

Apprenticeships are proving their worth as a high quality option for young people who want to Get in and Go far. New figures show that around 90% of employers and apprentices are satisfied with their programme and that around 75% of employers find that apprentices improve productivity or the quality of their products and services.

But it doesn’t stop there – the survey also showed that employment outcomes for apprentices remain strong with 92% of apprentices employed around 6 months after completion and the vast majority of apprentice employers committed to providing apprenticeships in the future.

Business Secretary Sajid Javid said:

“In the past, talented and ambitious school leavers were too often told that university was their only option. We have transformed apprenticeships to make sure we have the right mix of skills for our future workforce.”

The government is now delivering on its commitment to create 3 million more apprenticeships by 2020. This year’s National Apprenticeship Week saw employers across the country pledging to create 30,000 new apprenticeships and traineeships.
