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

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.
