Question for Department for Business, Innovation and Skills

UIN HL33, tabled on 18 May 2016

To ask Her Majesty’s Government whether they intend to publish the completion rates for apprentices across all apprenticeship frameworks and standards, disaggregated by gender, in the light of the recent report by the Young Women's Trust suggesting that female apprentices in male dominated sectors such as engineering, IT and construction are less likely to complete their apprenticeship.

Apprenticeship achievement rates disaggregated by framework and gender are published on the GOV.UK website by the Skills Funding Agency in the National Achievement Rate Tables (formerly National Success Rate Tables).

The dataset is too large to attach to this response but is available at the following link: https://www.gov.uk/government/statistical-data-sets/sfa-national-achievement-rates-tables-2014-to-2015

However, table 1 shows overall achievement rates by gender in 2014/15.
