Modern apprenticeships

Modern apprenticeships

Yesterday at Portfolio Questions I challenged the Minster for Employability and Training Jamie Hepburn MSP on why the SNP's record on modern apprenticeships continues to be poor. In 2016-17, there was a decline in the number of modern apprenticeship starts by 16 to 24-year-olds and by young people entering science, technology, engineering and mathematics framework modern apprenticeships. The minister could not explain why, after 10 years of SNP government, the level of apprenticeships for young people in Scotland continues to trail significantly behind that in the rest of the United Kingdom.
