Purpose of the session
The session is likely to focus on how the quality of apprenticeships and training is defined, who is responsible for the quality and how best to remove barriers to access to high quality training.
The inquiry is examining whether employers, learners and tax payers are getting value for the time and money invested in training, and whether more needs to be done to detect poor-quality provision.
