For millions of people, an apprenticeship is the key to getting on in life.
It gives them the chance to learn skills, earn a salary and gain vital qualifications.
Since 2010, we’ve created 1.8 million apprenticeships. That means young people up and down the country are kick-starting their working lives and fulfilling their potential.
Today we’re launching a campaign to encourage even more young people to start an apprenticeship. There’s now a greater variety and quality of apprenticeships on offer, with new employer-designed apprenticeships in sectors such as engineering, hospitality and the legal profession.
By delivering the best skills, we’re helping young people get on in life and ensuring Britain succeeds in the global race.
Apprenticeships are a vital part of our long-term economic plan to secure a stronger, healthier economy – and a better future for Britain.
