Our strategy to develop and expand apprenticeships to meet the nation's skills needs is outlined in 'World-class Apprenticeships'. We are committed to build an apprenticeship system that meets the needs of employers and which offers all suitably qualified young people a place on an apprenticeship if they wish. To this end we will be publishing a draft Apprenticeship Bill in July which will set out plans to further improve quality.
