In the past 12 months 2 apprentices, both aged 19, achieved their apprenticeship qualification. One of those was at level 3, the other apprentice has since left the Department and we do not continue to hold this data.

The Department for Business Innovation and Skills has 49 apprentices currently working towards an apprenticeship qualification, 19 of these are just embarking on their apprenticeship. This figure will rise to 55 in September. 12 of these apprentices will he under 21. We expect at least another 6 apprentices under 21 to join the Department in the new year.
