Treasury ministers have engaged on a regular basis with the Secretary of State for Education to monitor the Government’s public investment in skills, and the impact it has had on young people taking apprenticeships. We will have doubled spending on apprenticeships in the decade to 2020, which will allow us to achieve 3m apprenticeship starts in England by 2020 and give people the best start to their careers. In 2015-16 56% of all apprenticeship starts came from those aged under 25.
