Why is Apprenticeship uptake dropping?

Categories // Marketing and Communication

The government has recently announced figures for the number of Apprenticeships starts. Between August 2017 – January 2018 there has been a 24% decrease in starts over the same point the previous year.

Along with the levy there has also been other changes to Apprenticeships, these include the new apprenticeships standards,  the launch of the Institute of Apprenticeships and digital accounts to pay for apprenticeships.
