Construction firm Redrow polled 1,001 individuals between the ages of 18 and 21 and found 54% of respondents would now actively consider an apprenticeship.

More than half of young people would now consider taking an apprenticeship instead of going to university, according to a new survey that will provide a fillip for employers looking to attract fresh talent to maximise their return on the apprenticeship levy.

The survey also found young people felt they were receiving poor quality information about apprenticeship options. Nearly three-quarters (74%) said apprenticeships were not promoted in schools in the same way as other educational routes.

City & Guilds Group and the Industry Skills Board echos this report saying ‘greater value’ needs to be attached to apprenticeships.
