CITB MPs Vocational Education Survey

Survey of MPs on behalf of CITB on the topic of vocational education and apprenticeships

  • 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.
