A new report has concluded that apprenticeships must be on equal footing with university degrees.
As the latest NEET figures are released today, a new study has highlighted the role apprenticeships play in getting school and college leavers into work.
Industry experts are calling upon the government today to give a greater priority to and focus on vocational courses over university degrees, after a major report revealed that apprenticeships could result in comparable earnings to a university graduate.
Whilst 44% of graduates are predicted to be either underemployed or unemployed six months after leaving full time education, the report reveals that just 4.5% of those with Level 4 vocational qualifications are unemployed.
