Abstract

With record numbers of young people not gaining university places, the viability of apprenticeships could make a huge difference in preventing a ‘lost generation’ out of touch with the labour market. Dr Hilary Steedman of the LSE’s Centre for Economic Performance compares UK provision to our European neighbours, and finds that not enough employers are offering them, and schools should do far more to promote them.
