Apprenticeship Scheme


As a result of the Richard Review (2012), the way that apprenticeships are organised and funded changed in April 2017. The Government has identified a critical need for new technical and professional skilled workers as there is a huge skill shortage across the UK. This has resulted in an enormous target to get 3 million apprenticeships started by 2020 and has involved mass changes to the apprenticeship system.
