National Apprenticeship Week

A study of 2000 adults in England found that apprenticeships are considered a better alternative to higher education. 73% said that apprenticeships were good at preparing young people for their future careers compared with 52% who said the same for undergraduate degrees.

Despite this, half of respondents admitted they would still consider university as a route to skills development.  Just 30% said they would undergo an apprenticeship to improve their skills.
