David Way to leave National Apprenticeship Service

Following the integration between the National Apprenticeship Service and the Skills Funding Agency, Executive Director of the Apprenticeship Division, David Way, has announced that he will be stepping down from his post.

Commenting on his departure, David Way said: “Over the past five years I have greatly enjoyed developing and leading the National Apprenticeship Service. I am proud of our achievements and in particular the extensive work with employers and partners from across the sector. We have together achieved significant momentum under successive Governments whose leadership, ambition and investment has been vital. 

“With the National Apprenticeship Service successfully integrated within the Skills Funding Agency and a long term reform agenda for Apprenticeships set out by the Government, I know this is the best time to hand over the reins to others. I remain a passionate ambassador and advocate for Apprenticeships and I intend to use my extensive skills and experience to continue to develop effective partnerships between business, the FE and HE sectors and with young people, their parents and schools.”
