The Government’s Action Plan for Jobs contained the following commitment regarding a review of apprenticeship: “Initiate a review of the apprenticeship training model, including costs, duration and demand with a view to providing an updated model of training that delivers the necessary skilled workforce to service the needs of a rapidly changing economy and ensures appropriate balance between supply and demand.”

The first stage of the review process involves the preparation of this background issues paper which, inter alia, provides a factual description of the current system of apprenticeship, including the governance arrangements, trends and forecasts in relation to recruitment and identified strengths and weaknesses of the model and proposes a range of possible options for change.
