Mr Cameron's Three Million Apprenticeships

VIEW FULL TEXT | ISSUE CONTENTS LIST

In the 2015 general election campaign David Cameron celebrated the success of apprenticeships during the Coalition and promised another 3 million. This article argues that the 'reinvention' of apprenticeships has neither created real skills nor provided real alternatives for young people and that the UK schemes fall far short of those in Germany, for example. Apprenticeships can only be improved, it concludes, if there are alternative economic policies to support them.
