  • Release date: 13 July 2016
Work-Based Learning combines provider-based training with training in the workplace, and includes the Apprenticeships and Traineeships programmes.

The latest publication provides evidence on the effectiveness of the Traineeships programme, 2011-2015.

Findings from the evaluation include:

  • Over the course of 2011-2015 there had been around 24,500 leavers from the Traineeship Programme.
  • Performance improved in the second and third years with 68 per cent positive progression in 2013/14.
  • Overall European Social Fund targets were achieved for total participation, female involvement and numbers progressing into employment. However, targets for qualifications and progression into further learning were not met.
