Call for evidence on the future of apprenticeships

Close date: 7 September 2012

The Government has appointed Doug Richard, serial entrepreneur, to launch a call for evidence on the future of apprenticeships. It looks at how to: identify best practice to ensure that apprenticeships meet the needs of the changing economy; deliver the skills and qualifications that employers need and that help individuals to progress; and maximise the impact of public investment. It seeks to determine what a good apprenticeship looks like, what purpose apprenticeships should serve and what role the Government should play in delivering them.
