This report follows the research paper on Assessing Public Investment in Education and Skills. It considers how best to estimate the value added by government investment in apprenticeships:
- to what extent does the government pay for training which employers would have paid for themselves?
- how much apprenticeship and other work-based training would take place without public funding?
It looks at how we can use existing datasets to improve our understanding of this issue, especially surveys which have become available since the earlier research paper. It also recommends what further data can be collected and analysed in a cost-effective way.
