The department has published new figures today (27 Jun) showing that the proportion of 16-18 year olds in education and apprenticeships has increased to 81.3% - the highest since records began 25 years ago.

Apprenticeships and Skills Minister Anne Milton said:

“I’m pleased that the proportion of 16-18 year olds in education and apprenticeships has increased to 81.3% - the highest since records began 25 years ago.

“We want more young people to have the opportunity to learn new skills, get the jobs they want and build successful careers. Our new T Levels will offer young people high-quality technical courses on a par with the best in the world. Our changes to apprenticeships mean they are now longer, higher-quality and with more off-the-job training”. 

Updates to national participation figures for the end of 2017, released in June 2018, and provisional estimates for the end of 2018.
