Evaluation of the Pathways to Apprenticeship programme

The Pathways to Apprenticeships (PtA) programme is an innovative arrangement that aims to prepare young people aged 16 to 24 for apprenticeship by supplying a prior, mainly college-based year of vocational education and training to Level 2.

For employers, Pathways Apprenticeships are young people who have successfully completed a preparatory year and motivated to continue adding to their skills towards Level 3 achievement. 5.

The evaluation examined the process and impacts of the Pathways programme to date. Drawing conclusions on achievements, it was also designed to guide the future delivery of the programme.
