I propose to take Questions Nos. 455 and 456 together.
There are currently 60 apprenticeships available with a further 18 programmes in development. Apprenticeship is demand-led. For craft apprenticeship, the number of places is determined by employers, with off-the-job training provided to all registered apprentices. Apprenticeships established since 2016 have one or more intakes per annum with the take-up determined by employer engagement and available apprentice jobs.
A list of current apprenticeships is attached in Table 1, including registration figures for 2020 and the latest figures available to end of April 2021. Table 2 shows the 18 apprenticeships in development and the estimated initial apprentice registrations.
