Report shows apprenticeships remain strong

Investment in apprenticeships has remained resilient in the face of the pandemic according to a new report released last week. In-Comm Training’s third annual ‘Training Barometer’ revealed that 67% of companies had taken on apprentices during the past 12 months, while a staggering 97% kept all their learners on despite the pressures of the pandemic. This confidence extends into the future, with more than two thirds of businesses (70%) committing to taking on an apprentice over the next year (up from 47% in 2021), and 69% giving employees the opportunity to progress learning all the way to an HNC or Degree.
