Wednesday 9 May in Committee Room 16, Palace of Westminster
- Hannah Cuthbert, Business Administration Apprentice, University of Hull
- Gavin Garner, Caretaker Apprentice, Hull City Council
- Cheryl Sedgwick, Employer Liaison and Partnership Development Lead, Hull Training and Adult Education
- Lisa Shepherdson, Deputy Manager, Hull Training and Adult Education
Purpose of the session
Questions are likely to focus on barriers faced by apprentices and how employers and providers can provide support. MPs may also ask about the effects of changes to the funding system for apprenticeships.
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 help people climb the ladder of opportunity that apprenticeships and training can offer.
