Apprentices and School Leavers

This section provides knowledge, insight and tips on apprentices and school leavers. It describes how employers are working with schools, colleges and training and apprenticeship providers to gather the talent they need. 

Most of the information in this section is focused on England, but there are also a range of links and resources relating the devolved administrations in the UK and to global practices. 


Key sections

  • Schools have a statutory duty to provide career guidance to pupils. This section explores the current situation in schools and the range of ways that employers are working with them. 
  • Vocational and technical education is an important pathway to the labour market for many young people. This section explores T Levels as well as the existing pathways and examines the ways in which employers engage with the learning providers that are delivering them and the students that are taking the courses. 
  • Apprenticeships are educational pathways that combine work with training. This section looks at the current policy and regulations around apprenticeship and explores how employers have been making it work in their businesses.
