Surveying apprentices gives us unique insights which are used to inform our work.

Our surveys ensure that apprentices are represented and have a platform to share their views. 

After our surveys we:​

  • analyse the data; 

  • write short reports;

  • run campaigns;

  • and work with influential figures to create policy change.


New report coming soon!

We recently surveyed apprentices about mentoring, wellbeing and skills development. The results will be out soon. Watch this space!
