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.
