Provides an overview of modern apprenticeships, setting it within the context of the “skills gap”, particularly in relation to intermediate skills. Includes an outline of how the frameworks are produced and clarifies the distinction between modern apprenticeships and training credits, commonly known as YT. Focuses mainly on the take‐up of the programme in Devon and Cornwall. Discusses four sectoral areas ‐ engineering manufacture, the hospitality sector, construction and agriculture ‐ all major sectors in the region. Presents the responses of young people, employers and training providers and examines the viability of modern apprenticeships as a vocational alternative to full‐time education and its effectiveness in meeting the skills needs of employers.
