The apprenticeship budget has been set until 2020 to support the Government’s commitment to 3 million apprenticeship starts in England by 2020. This budget does not change irrespective of wider economic trends. By 2020 the total apprenticeships investment in England will be almost £2.5 billion; double what was spent in 2010-11.
