On 20 August the Government launched a major advertising campaign featuring real apprentices from some of Britain’s brightest companies. The apprentices, some of whom are gaining degree level qualifications while working and earning, will feature in TV ads, posters, and in digital channels. The campaign is to show young people and their parents that Apprenticeships can be an equal choice to university, by showcasing the variety and quality of Apprenticeships on offer.

There’s never been a better time to be an apprentice as there are more high quality Apprenticeship places available with quality employers in England than ever before.

  • Apprenticeships are already proving to be a successful and viable option to university. This year more than 800,000 apprentices are earning and learning.
  • Since 2010, 1.8m young people have started an Apprenticeship across 170 industries.
  • Research has shown that 86% of those who did an apprenticeship stayed in work afterwards, 67% with the same employer.
