Question for Department of Health and Social Care

UIN HL14603, tabled on 24 March 2021

To ask Her Majesty's Government what assessment they have made of the level of interest in NHS apprenticeships; and what estimate, if any, they have made of the number of people they expect to apply to such schemes in the next 12 months.

There is a high level of interest in National Health Service apprenticeships. Data from the Department for Education shows over 18,000 NHS apprentices started training in 2019/20 in a range of roles.

We have not undertaken an estimate of the numbers of applications to NHS apprentice schemes in the next 12 months.
