More than 28,000 people started apprenticeships last year.

The number of apprentices benefitting from work-based learning has risen for the eighth consecutive year, according to the latest set of statistics.

Skills Development Scotland’s (SDS) Modern Apprenticeship report has outlined the breakdown of Modern and Graduate Apprenticeships for the year to 31 March 2019.

The report reveals that in 2018/19:

• 28,191 people started their apprenticeships

• 37,765 apprentices are currently in training

• 21,767 individuals achieved their apprenticeship qualifications

The number of Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics (STEM) apprenticeships has continued to grow. Four out of ten Modern Apprenticeship starts were in STEM roles and the majority of all Graduate Apprenticeships are also in STEM occupations.

Childcare-related positions increased by almost a fifth from 1,691 in 2017/18 to 2,102 in 2018/19, ahead of the Scottish Government doubling entitlement to early learning and childcare from August 2020 to 1,140 hours a year.

    BBC Scotland News and Current Affairs is too busy at the moment putting out propaganda in favour of “Boris”.
