This conference follows recent announcements on how the Government intends to radically change the way apprenticeships are designed, assessed and funded; the creation of new ‘traineeships’ to help prepare young people for apprenticeships to work and the introduction of new 16 to 19 study programmes to enable young people to gain vocational qualifications recognised by employers.

  • Emran Mian, Director, Social Market Foundation
  • Nick Lawrence, Deputy Director, Qualifications Policy, Department for Education
