To ask the Secretary of State for Education, what the maximum duration is of an apprenticeship.
28 July 2016
To ensure that apprenticeships are focused on providing sustained and substantial training, they must last for at least 12 months. We do not set a maximum duration centrally, but apprenticeships generally take between one and four years to complete.
The suggested duration of each apprenticeship is set by employers when designing the apprenticeship standard.
