To ask the Secretary of State for Education, what estimate he has made of the number of people who have begun an apprenticeship in (a) Coventry North East constituency, (b) Coventry, (c) the West Midlands and (d) England in each of the last five years.
3 February 2022
Over five years of substantial reforms, we have made apprenticeships longer and better, with more off the job training and assessment at the end. We have introduced high quality employer designed standards, put funding on a sustainable footing through the introduction of the apprenticeship levy, and introduced the register for apprenticeship training providers to ensure apprentices receive high quality training.
Care should be taken when comparing apprenticeship start figures across years, due to the impact of these reforms, and the impact of the COVID-19 outbreak on employer recruitment.
Apprenticeship starts for Coventry North East parliamentary constituency, Coventry Unitary Authority, West Midlands Region and England in the last 5 full academic years and the first quarter of the current academic year are shown in the table below:
