Research organisations questioned on apprenticeships and skills training

16 January 2018

The Education Committee hears from the Institute for Public Policy Research (IPPR), Young Women's Trust and Sutton Trust on the quality of apprenticeships and skills training.


Tuesday 16 January in Committee Room 15, Palace of Westminster

At 10.30am

  • Joe Dromey, Senior Research Fellow, IPPR
  • Dr Carole Easton, Chief Executive, Young Women's Trust
  • Dr Lee Elliot Major, Chief Executive, Sutton Trust


The three organisations have all undertaken research on how to improve apprenticeships and skills training courses and open up access for learners.

Questioning is likely to focus on the standard of current provision and what good quality training looks like, financial and other barriers to training and the wider skills system.

The inquiry

The Committee's inquiry was launched in November and is examining the quality of all forms of Government funded apprenticeships and skills training, as well as the effectiveness of the quality monitoring regime.
