This is the report of a study to explore outcomes and progression from Modern Apprenticeships and National Traineeships.The main aims of the research were to gain a better understanding about:

  • the range of possibilities open to young people after they have completed an MA or NTr
  • the skills that employers want from their young apprentices and how they utilise those skills
  • the extent to which there is an inter-relationship between the work-based route and possible progression to higher qualifications and/or higher education
  • existing good practice which has wider application and could be replicated across industries or organisations.

The research approach comprised in-depth case studies in six occupational sectors.
