Young Women’s Trust surveyed 508 current or recent apprentices aged 18-30, asking questions about their experience of apprenticeships

  • Of those who have completed an apprenticeship 71% are working, with 10% out of work and claiming benefits and 9% out of work and not claiming benefits
  • Whilst over a quarter (29%) of respondents say they are managing very well, financially and two in five (41%) say they are managing moderately well, 22% say they are just about managing and 5% not managing
  • A majority agree that their apprenticeship has taught them new skills (77%), and that they feel proud to be doing/ have done an apprenticeship (77%); however, approaching half (46%) say their apprenticeship was a waste of time
