Public Sector Apprenticeship Target

Back to Key Information

Under the Public Sector Apprenticeship Target Regulations (2017) and having regard to the Department for Education’s ‘Meeting the Public Sector Apprenticeship Target’ (September 2020), schools, academies and trusts with 250 or more employees have a target to employ an average of at least 2.3 percent of their staff as new apprentices over the period of 1 April 2017 to 31 March 2021. Employers are required to provide information to help the government, public and wider stakeholders understand the progress they are making towards meeting this target. This information should demonstrate that a school has actively considered apprenticeships either for new positions or as part of career development for existing staff.

You will find our reports outlining how we are working to meet our target below.
