Survey of over 4,000 employers of apprentices, updating findings from 2013. BIS research paper number 204.
This survey examines the views and experiences of 4,030 employers whose employees had finished an apprenticeship programme between August 2012 and March 2013. It updates findings from an earlier 2013 apprenticehip evaluation employer survey.
This research monitors the extent to which apprenticeships are meeting the needs of employers. It also identifies aspects of the programme that are under-performing.
Most employers are satisfied with apprenticeships and see a positive impact on their business from having apprentices. The report shows results from different apprenticeship frameworks, and also by the size of the organisation involved.
The evaluation also looks at the views and experiences of apprentices - these are available in the apprentice learner report 2014.
