The National Union of Students has launched a new research project on apprenticeships.
At a time of high unemployment, apprenticeships are seen as an important mechanism for giving people the skills and experience to be successful in the job market. This research will gather information on the role of career information, advice and guidance in the decision to work as an apprentice. The findings will allow the NUS to see how useful this guidance has been in promoting apprenticeships and in helping apprentices make decisions that fit their needs and motivations. This research will also allow NUS to campaign on behalf of apprentices for improvements in careers guidance.
The NUS are looking for help from providers in promoting and distributing the online survey to apprentices.
