Apprenticeships: reform and progress (In focus)

Provides an overview of the most recent reforms to the apprenticeship system in England. Explains that the UK government is rolling out a new system from April 2017 with the aim of creating three million new apprenticeships by 2020. Covers: the apprenticeship levy; the introduction of a dedicated register of approved apprenticeship training providers (RoATP); and the establishment of an employer-led Institute for Apprenticeships. Highlights reaction from employers, business and industry to the reforms. Looks at apprenticeship policy in each of the devolved administrations, and considers how the English reforms will impact on policy in Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland. Reviews previous reforms to the apprenticeship system by both the Labour and Coalition governments. Superseded by 2018 2nd edition (Ref No: B50836).
