Apprenticeship reform programme: benefits realisation strategy

Apprenticeship reform programme: benefits realisation strategy

This strategy outlines a range of high-level indicators of success for the programme, measured in positive outcomes for participants.

The benefits realisation updates summarise progress in achieving the growth targets set out in the strategy, taken from the published statistical data sets.

Apprenticeship reform programme: benefits realisation In the apprenticeship reform programme: benefits realisation strategy1 published in March 2017, we committed to reporting on a quarterly basis against success measures relating to increased growth, taken from the published statistical data sets.

The latest statistical first release (SFR)2 was published on 23 November 2017. This provided finalised data on all further education and skills, including the apprenticeship programme, for the academic year 2016/17.

We have summarised progress towards our 3 million target and other growth success measures, with final figures taken from the statistical data sets3 covering the academic year 2016/17.

Update on growth The Government is committed to reaching 3 million new apprenticeship starts in England by 2020. Final data for 2016 to 2017 academic year shows 494,900 apprenticeships have been started. This compares to 509,400 reported at this time last year for the 2015 to 2016 academic year, a decrease of 2.8%.

This takes us to 1,119,600 apprenticeship starts since May 2015, which is 37.3% of 3 million, broadly within trajectory to meet this target by 2020. Starts in higher and advanced apprenticeship levels have increased: the highest percentage increase has been in higher apprenticeships, which have increased by 34.7% from 27,200 in 2015 to 2016 up to 36,600 in 2016 to 2017.

Starts at intermediate level decreased by 10.5% in the 2016 to 17 academic year compared to the same point in 2015/16.
