Perez-del-Aguila, Rossana; Monteiro, Helen; Hughes, Maria
Learning and Skills Development Agency (NJ3)
The research project investigated participation and achievement in apprenticeships by young people from minority ethnic groups across a number of regions and occupational sectors. It sought views on the value and status of apprenticeship, and factors influencing take-up, retention and achievement, and how this may be improved. The project objectives were to examine: (1) the current level of participation and achievement across the apprenticeship frameworks for young people from across minority ethnic groups compared with other learners; (2) the facilitating or inhibiting factors affecting participation, including perceptions of the value and status of apprenticeships; and (3) the role of providers and employers in encouraging and supporting participation by learners from minority ethnic groups in apprenticeships. Appended to this report are (1) Data Analysis, which includes population estimates; breakdown of ethnicity by area of learning (excluding white); take-up rates by region and ethnicity; year-on-year analysis; and participation rates by minority ethnic groups and region; and (2) The Provider and Employer Sample. (Contains 13 tables and 4 figures.)
