University isn’t the only option to kick-start a career
15 August 2019
Responding to today’s A‑level results, Mark Hilton, Executive Director, Employment and Skills, said:
“While many of those getting their A‑level results today will be looking to universities for the next step in their education, this isn’t the only option to kick-start a career.
“Vocational routes should provide the same quality of opportunity, but with just eight apprenticeships per thousand working Londoners and a fall of 30% in apprenticeship starts since April 2017, the Government urgently needs to reform the Apprenticeship Levy to make this a reality.
“Business is committed to doing more to help: this November’s Skills London event brings over 30,000 young people together more than 200 employers, colleges, universities and training providers to make life-changing connections.”
