Since the general election in 2015, apprenticeships have been a major Government priority to improve skills and productivity in the UK. The then Prime Minister, David Cameron, announced that a new £3 million target for apprenticeship starts is envisaged in the lifetime of the parliament. This will be achieved through: 

  • Greater apprenticeship starts in the Public Sector 
  • 2.3% target for certain Public Bodies to meet; 
  • Government contracts of a certain size will also require a commitment from tendering organisations on apprenticeships  
  • General increase of starts across all sectors
