This is part of a longitudinal study, which is an observational research method where data is gathered for the same subject repeatedly over a period of time. We published the first results in BIS research paper 107. This report provides an update on those findings. It looks at 6 groups of advanced level apprentices who had completed their courses. The research describes the complex nature of apprenticeship progression to higher education, in both colleges and universities.
The findings describe apprenticeship progression as it is now. The research project aims to continue matching year on year data. It aims to provide ever richer sets of data, tracking the progression routes for this important group of part-time work-based learners.
