Technical apprenticeships: research into supply and demand

This report examines the need for and capacity to provide technical apprenticeships in England.



Apprenticeships can offer a valuable route into science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM) jobs.

This report investigates the supply and demand of STEM related apprenticeships by talking to employers, providers and stakeholders and analysing data on the number of related apprenticeships. It looks at the kind of people doing them, which sectors they are in, whether there are enough to keep up with employer demand and what that demand is likely to be in the future.
