17-18 Public Sector Apprenticeship Target

We have a public sector target around new apprenticeships starts. This target runs from 1 April 2017 to 31 March 2021 and is set at 2.3 per cent of the total number of Trust employees. We are required to report annually on our progress towards this target and have submitted our first report to the Department for Education covering the period 2017-18. The information below is taken from our first annual return to the Department for Education detailing our progress towards meeting the Public Sector Apprenticeship Target.
