To ask the Secretary of State for Education, whether the Minister of State for Apprenticeships and Skills has held meetings with the panel of apprentices that reports to the Board of the Institute for Apprenticeships.
This answer is the replacement for a previous holding answer.

The Panel of Apprentices, announced in April 2017, is particularly important to help the Institute for Apprenticeships improve the quality of apprenticeships as it reflects the importance of apprentices’ experiences across a broad range of different occupational routes.
I attended by telephone the meeting of the Board of the Institute for Apprenticeships in December last year. I am hoping to meet with the Panel of Apprentices in the near future.
