Apprenticeships: progression to higher education – 2014 update

This report presents the findings of research undertaken for the Department for Business, Innovation and Skills (BIS) into the progression to higher education of advanced level apprentices over a seven year period.

This is part of a longitudinal study whose first results were published in BIS research Paper 107 (Joslin & Smith, 2013) and this report provides an update on those findings for six cohorts of advanced level apprentices who had completed their framework. The research captures the complex nature of apprenticeship progression and reports on progression to higher education in both colleges and universities.
