Taking training seriously: Lessons from an international comparison of off-the-job training for apprenticeships in England

This report highlights that apprenticeships programmes in England have a significantly smaller proportion of off-the-job training, including general education, than those in other countries where apprenticeships are a critical element of the education system. A series of recommendations are made as to how the English apprenticeship programme could be improved. The report covers the following issues, providing recommendations: giving apprentices the right quantity and mix of training; including sufficient general education; delivering quality in off-the-job training; linking off-the-job training in an apprenticeship to an occupational qualification; ensuring breadth in qualifications and training provision; articulating apprenticeships with T-levels; supporting equity and social mobility; and enhancing the off-the-job content of youth apprenticeships., Abstract from publisher’s website with additional information.
