From FE Week:
Apprenticeship starts in March were down 52 per cent compared with the same period in 2017. There have been 23,900 starts recorded so far in March 2018, compared with 50,000 in March 2017 according to the Education and Skills Funding Agency’s monthly apprenticeship statistics update.
Overall starts for the year to date stand at 261,200, compared with 362,400 for the same period in 2016/17 – a fall of 28 per cent. That means the government is now 230,300 or 17 per cent off the necessary trajectory to achieve its target of three million by 2020.
