The Government has announced a large rise in the number of apprenticeships. There has been a 115% increase in the number of higher apprenticeships started in the year 2015 compared to 2014.
Nick Boles, Minister of State for Skills, said in a statement:
“We want to give all young people a chance to make the most of their talents and create a better life for themselves. That’s exactly why we are committed to creating 3 million apprenticeships by 2020.
Businesses and colleges should be congratulated for helping apprenticeships move from strength to strength. I am hugely proud of the success we have achieved together and look forward to even more young people getting the chance to work hard and get on”.
