Welsh Government’s new Apprenticeship policy

Developed in consultation with businesses, the policy and its five year action plan sets out how the Welsh Government will create a minimum of 100,000 high quality apprentices by:

  • increasing the number of 16-19 year old school-leavers who choose to take-up quality apprenticeships

  • addressing skills shortages by developing apprenticeships particularly in growth and emerging sectors such as the ICT, Engineering, Construction and Financial and Professional Services

  • developing higher level skills by focussing on apprenticeships at level 4 and above

  • bring apprenticeships closer to the wider education system and making it easier to enter into an apprenticeship from another learning route
