Apprenticeships and Skills Policy

The following is an extract from the Westminster Hall debate on Apprenticeships and Skills Policy on 8 January 2018.

With respect to the drop in level 2 apprenticeships, which was mentioned earlier, we are not absolutely sure what is behind the figures. Some 90% of starts are still at levels 2 and 3, and of course employment is high, but we need to dig deeper. [Official Report, 8 January 2019, Vol. 652, c. 94WH.]

Letter of correction from the Minister for Apprenticeships and Skills (Anne Milton):

An error has been identified in the speech I gave during the debate on Apprenticeships and Skills Policy.

The correct information should have been:

With respect to the drop in level 2 apprenticeships, which was mentioned earlier, we are not absolutely sure what is behind the figures. Some 87% of starts are still at levels 2 and 3, and of course employment is high, but we need to dig deeper.
