    Interesting figures, I wonder if this is because people are being encouraged into apprenticeships, or because university fees are now unaffordable for many, or both?

    Businesses and colleges should be congratulated for helping apprenticeships move from strength to strength. I am hugely proud of the success we have achieved together and look forward to even more young people getting the chance to work hard and get on.”
