Apprenticeships for schools

Public sector apprenticeship reporting

The public sector apprenticeships target came to an end on 31 March 2022, therefore there is no longer an apprenticeship target set for public sector employers. However, public sector employers who were required to report against the public sector apprenticeships target are asked to continue to gather information on new apprenticeship starts, total number of apprentices and organisational headcount. Maintained schools will be emailed directly at the end of March/beginning of April with information on how to return the relevant data.

Other schools, academies or multi-academy trusts with a head count of over 250 staff must follow the DfE guidance on Meeting the public sector apprenticeship target – statutory guidance (GOV.UK) (link opens in new window).
