Podiatry is the first allied health profession to offer an apprenticeship route to training. HEE will continue to monitor and work with employers to support the apprenticeship route whilst it is in its infancy. This should help to widen access and...
Huw Merriman: ...this is a bit of an indicator of why perhaps people in this country have fallen out of love with the European project, as it were. For a scheme—it has become Erasmus+ and already been widened to cover training, apprenticeships and even job seeking—to go from a cost of €15 billion to €30 billion is quite extraordinary.

Lisa Cameron: ...of important areas, including access to training in job sectors, particularly those that will be sectors of the future and where jobs are likely to be found. The Government have made some movements on apprenticeships, and I am grateful for that, but I think much more can be done. Public procurement should reward businesses that provide inclusive employment opportunities, to ensure that...
Alex Cunningham: To ask the Secretary of State for Education, what plans he has for the allocation of unspent apprenticeship levy funds; and whether such unspent funds will be ring fenced for skills development.

Lord Gardiner of Kimble: .... The educational output of the National Bee Unit last year increased to 190 courses, benefiting 9,000 beekeepers. It is aided by partnerships with the British Beekeepers’ Association, the national diploma in beekeeping and the Bee Farmers Association, to whose apprenticeship scheme Defra last year gave around £20,000. The beekeepers of the House may be particularly interested...

In addition, and distinct from recruiting, the Ministry of Defence is fully engaged in youth STEM outreach activity as part of the UK national effort, to ensure that the...
Gillian Martin: ...Scotland to recruit female modern apprentices out of school. Earlier this year I was at Sparrows Offshore Services Ltd in Bridge of Don to meet former pupils of my old school, Ellon academy. I met Leanne Brown, who is a hydraulic technician. Leanne could have gone to university, but chose to do an apprenticeship, because Sparrows offered her the skills and partnership to enable her to...
Stephen Barclay: ...;s NHS will be receiving. We are making historic investment in recruitment, which is why we are opening five new medical schools in England, training 1,500 new medical doctors, taking initiatives such as on apprenticeships and opening new pathways into clinical roles.
Jeremy Hunt: ...funding, there is always an initial dip in applications. In this case, record numbers of 18 to 19-year-olds applied, but there was a dip among mature students. That is why we have introduced the apprenticeship route. We need to make sure that that works if that dip is to be reversed.
