Awarding organisation NCFE recently carried out research to establish parents’ attitudes to apprenticeships. Buoyed by the success of National Apprenticeship Week, it appears that attitudes towards apprenticeships are on the up.
Some 68% of parents think Apprenticeships are an excellent way to earn and learn, and similarly 62% believe that university doesn’t suit everyone. This is significantly different from the results from a 2013 survey carried out by the Association of Accounting Technicians (AAT), which showed that a similar percentage of parents (63%) didn’t understand Apprenticeships well enough to explain them to their children.
NCFE has collated the results of its research into a handy infographic.
