Apprenticeship Levy

Making the case for High Quality Apprenticeships

29 May 2019

In this week’s Education Investor, our CEO Sean, makes the case for High Quality Apprenticeships and challenges the view that Apprenticeships are an either/or with regards to training new or existing staff.

Sean champions the Corndel philosophy that brilliant training across every role, from entry through to CEO, is a cornerstone to the success of the Apprenticeship Levy.

The number of Apprenticeship starts since the introduction of the Levy, doesn’t paint a full picture. Sean explains, “Three million low-quality starts in fields where there is no progression for learners and no career prospects is much, much worse than one million starts in high-quality, high-value training that genuinely improves a learner’s productivity and prospects,”

Lower Starts, traded in return for much higher-quality apprenticeships, is “a very good trade to make” and is certainly one of the best developments that we have seen since the introduction of the Levy, in 2017.

Sean asks the fundamental question: “Would the UK rather have three million shelf-stacking apprenticeships, or 1.5 million data analytics apprenticeships?”
