Briefing 116 - Why apprenticeships make sense
November 21, 2018
An apprenticeship is a route to developing skills and competencies, catering for people from different backgrounds, experiences and levels of achievement. Originally catering for young people (in the main), apprenticeships now provide a practical learning pathway, as well as a means to achieving higher levels of education and a successful career in specialisms such as IT. This briefing sets out the opportunities created by apprenticeship schemes, the scope of apprenticeship schemes across the UK, some of the support available and three leading examples from councils that are focused on driving up IT skills.
