At present, none of our apprentices are working towards a degree apprenticeship but we are still expanding our offering and have the capability to offer apprenticeships at this level

We are working closely with our providers to ensure that each apprenticeship is an appropriate match with the learner level and the role they are doing. In our plans for the future we envisage degree apprenticeships as part of a structured approach to our development across House teams.

We do not hold information for the House of Lords.

(a) Three apprentices are working towards a Level 2 qualification and this will rise to 16 apprentices in April;

(b) Five apprentices are working towards a Level 3 qualification with a further four apprentices enrolling in March and another four planned for later in the year

(c) One apprentice is working towards a Level 4 qualification; and

(d) Three apprentices are working towards a higher apprenticeship qualification.
