From education to employment

Are Apprenticeships the Answer? The Catch22Minutes Podcast


In the latest figures, apprenticeship starts are down by about 7% compared to last year. That was despite financial incentives being put in place to encourage businesses to take on apprentices.

But could apprenticeships boost youth employment?

What impact are Government incentives having in practice?

And what are the benefits to businesses and young people in embarking on an apprenticeship?

We’ll be exploring all this, and more, with Kirstin Steinmetz, Director of Workforce Development at Salesforce, and Kathleen Henehan, Senior Research and Policy Analyst at the Resolution Foundation. You’ll also hear from Habiba Aden, who is nine months into her Multiverse digital marketing apprenticeship at Catch22.
