Commenting on today’s monthly apprenticeship statistics, AELP chief executive Mark Dawe said:


‘Here is hard evidence rather than anecdote and we don’t want to hear any more excuses.  These latest figures seem to confirm that the government is currently way short of hitting its manifesto target.  But the real concern is the impact on social mobility as we see fewer starts for young people and at levels 2 and 3.  How many more months’ data do we need before the government starts taking action?  AELP is calling for no more employer contributions towards apprenticeships for 16 to 24 year olds at non-levy paying employers, or at employers that have exceeded their levy.’
