Alex Burghart – 2022 Comments on Reforming Apprenticeships

The comments made by Alex Burghart, the Minister for Skills, on 27 May 2022.

We have transformed apprenticeships so they offer a high-quality route into professions as diverse as engineering, healthcare, and digital for young people starting their careers, or adults hoping to retrain and upskill.

We now want to focus on making the system as simple and user-friendly as possible, reducing bureaucratic burdens on employers and providers and giving apprentices the best possible experience.
