Apprenticeships benefit individuals, employers and the economy. That is why we have made a commitment to deliver 3 million apprenticeship starts during this Parliament.

As part of the 3 million starts, there will be many more advanced and higher level apprenticeships, which in turn will widen access to the professions and develop the higher technical skills needed to improve productivity and support industry. There will also be more Degree apprenticeships which allow young people to combine a world-class degree with a world class-apprenticeship route.

We will say more about the detail of our plans to deliver 3 million apprenticeships in due course.
