We have commissioned various services from the Behavioural Insights Team, including increasing the demand for technical education, as set out by the Sainsbury Panel, supporting communication of the apprenticeship levy, as well as a small scale trial on the impact of diversity messages in apprenticeship vacancies.

We have also commissioned the Team to develop (and test) behavioural interventions to encourage high ability students to apply to the best universities, rather than the nearest ones.
