We are committed to growing the quality and number of apprenticeships so that even more people have the opportunity to get on in life. That’s why in the 2017-18 academic year, we are making available over £2 billion for apprenticeships.

We are doubling the annual level of spending on apprenticeships between 2010-11 and 2019-20 in cash terms to £2.5billion.
