Subcontracted Apprenticeships – Enrolments (Updated In-Year)

The figures reflect the College’s planned reduction in subcontracted apprenticeship provision. The College will continue to work with, and selectively grow, high value-added partners where there is a clear alignment with our Strategic Plan.

Subcontracted Apprenticeships – Enrolments (2020-21 Year-End)

Line graph showing subcontracted apprentice engagement trend analysis

Participation rates for partnership activity fell in 2020/21 in both age groups. 16-18 partnership activity continued a 5-year decline and was 239 (310). Following two years of growth, adult partnership activity also fell to 607 (814) in 2020/21.

The impact of the Covid-19 health pandemic also accelerated the College’s three-year plan to reduce low added-value subcontracted work and replace with in-college and/or high-value partner Apprenticeships.
