Apprenticeships will be more important than ever in helping businesses, in all sectors, to recruit the right people and develop the skills they need to recover and grow. We want to expand apprenticeship opportunities by promoting flexible models of training, making it easier to do an apprenticeship where work consists of successive work placements.

We will work closely with employers to explore how we can make apprenticeships work better for certain sectors, for example those with more flexible and short-term models of employment. In particular, we are working closely with the construction and digital sectors to develop solutions.
