Exploring the funding and support for apprentices with additional support needs


Explore our research into the effectiveness of funding to support apprentices with learning difficulties, disabilities or disadvantage.

Learning and Work Institute report on findings from interviews with apprenticeship providers, employers and third party organisations.

This report identifies areas to consider in the future development of apprenticeships funding policy.

The interviews explored how organisations define and identify:

  • Support needs;
  • The support that providers give to apprentices;
  • The funding that can be accessed to meet these needs;
  • Whether the support enables apprentices to participate in and complete the programme.
