Concern over Availability of IT Apprenticeships
December 18, 2014
Figures from the Skills Funding Agency show that there is a far greater demand for Information Technology related apprenticeships within British workplaces than there is available roles, with around ten candidates per vacancy.
The figures, obtained by accounting firm SJD Accountancy, indicate that 13,060 people started ICT apprenticeships in 2013/14, down 33% on 2011/12.
This is despite the number of applications for ICT apprenticeships almost trebling during that period, from 48,350 to 133,800. This means there are now over 10 applicants competing for each vacancy, compared with 2.5 in 2010/11.
