Is it an appropriate time to pose the question “How Do We Measure The Impact of Apprenticeships?”
The real value of any training programme is the impact it has on behaviour and how those changes are reflected in future performance. So here are a few questions I would like to ask about Apprenticeships:
1. How many Apprentices were offered a full-time job at the end of their training?
2. How many Apprentices were still with the same employer 12 months after completing their programme?
3. How many Apprentices who initially undertook a Level 2 programme, moved on to a higher-level Apprenticeship?
4. How many Apprentices were promoted to a new role at the same company within 2 years of completing their first programme?
