Unionlearn: supporting higher-level apprenticeships

In response to the Prime Minister’s announcement of a £25 million fund to support advanced and higher apprenticeships, Tom Wilson, unionlearn director said: “If apprenticeships are to be meaningful, they need to lead on to higher-level studies and skills. Employers need to support apprentices to degree level and beyond if we are to have a highly-skilled and competitive workforce in advanced manufacturing, information technology and engineering. Unions are working with employers to support the expansion of apprenticeships.”
