Apprenticeships and traineeships for 16-19 year olds- The Education Select Committee report concludes that while there has been an improvement in the number of apprenticeships lasting 12 months or more, the proportion of young people taking up apprenticeships remain too low.  

The report contains a number of recommendations to government including

• Further data collection to review the impact of income on different frameworks
• Review incentives for schools to provide good quality careers advice
• Encourage work experience for KS4 students and re-consider the Young Apprenticeship model or similar  
• Strengthening the role of SMEs and encourage more employers to take on apprentices   
• Clarify role of traineeships and advertise benefits of apprenticeships more effectively
