Skills Minister John Hayes said:
“These increases are extremely encouraging and it is testament to the Government’s unwavering commitment to apprenticeships. They are at the heart of our skills policy because they equip people with the skills they need for a prosperous future and provide businesses with the expertise they need to grow.
“It is particularly encouraging to see the large number of apprenticeships for younger people.
“At the same time as increasing the number of apprenticeships, I have been relentless in my commitment to quality - striving to ensure that every apprenticeship is as good as the best.”
