We are committed to 3 million more apprenticeships, which are for people of all ages and creating new technical education routes. Delivered by a revitalised FE sector, including specialist institutions, these will provide people with the skills employers need.

We are also supporting adults to retrain through advanced learner loans and we will be exploring ambitious new approaches to encourage lifetime learning, including in HE which has a role extending opportunities for adults.
