Question for Department for Education

UIN 112296, tabled on 10 November 2017

To ask the Secretary of State for Education, with reference to point 9 on page 4 of the Association of Colleges' proposals for Autumn Budget 2017, what assessment she has made of the implications for her policies on apprenticeships of the recommendation to earmark up to 25 per cent of apprenticeship levy funds to ensure access, quality and progression.

Our reforms, the largest changes to apprenticeships government has ever made, are supporting an increase in the quality of apprenticeships and allowing apprentices to develop their talents and progress their careers. We are continually reviewing the impact of these reforms on employers, providers and apprentices and we welcome input from organisations like the Association of Colleges to help inform our decisions.
