Review of Apprenticeships

11 June 2012 #Employment

A review of apprenticeships in England has been launched by the Government. The review is to be led by Doug Richard (entrepreneur and campaigner for start up and small businesses) and will look at what makes a high-quality apprenticeship.

According to the Cabinet Office:

The Richard Review of Apprenticeships will look at how to build upon the record success of recent years by:

  • Ensuring that apprenticeships meet the needs of the changing economy
  • Ensuring every apprenticeship delivers high quality training and the qualifications and skills that employers need
  • Maximising the impact of Government investment.

Looking to the future, the review will examine how apprenticeships can continue to best meet the needs of employers, individuals, and the wider economy; which learners and employers can and should benefit most from apprenticeships; and what the core components of a high quality apprenticeship should be.

The review should report its findings in Autumn 2012.
