Question to the Department for Education:
To ask the Secretary of State for Education, how portable apprenticeships will be defined.
We are committed to supporting greater use of apprenticeships in sectors where flexible working practices are commonplace, including short periods of project-based employment.
To support these sectors, we are launching a £7 million fund to support the creation and expansion of apprenticeship training agencies which offer portable apprenticeships, enabling apprentices to move between different host employers as they complete their training.
We continue to work closely with the creative and agricultural industries in increasing the portability of apprenticeships and will set out further details in due course.
