- Nine in ten (93%) MPs think that greater availability of apprenticeships will benefit the British economy.
- However, three quarters of MPs (77%) agree that current provision of careers advice tends to promote academic qualifications, not vocational education.
- Furthermore, more than a quarter of MPs (28%) believe that apprenticeships train young people for a job, rather than a career.
