The value of apprenticeships

For some high needs students, an apprenticeship may be a logical next step once they complete their college course.

Study programmes

Colleges can design study programmes for students with the specific aim of helping them to progress into an apprenticeship.

This example is from RNIB College, Loughborough.


In 2016, the government commissioned a taskforce, led by Paul Maynard MP, to explore ways to improve access to apprenticeships for people with learning disabilities.  It accepted all the recommendations from the review (including reducing the minimum standard of English and maths required to Entry level 3 for a defined group of apprentices with learning difficulties and disabilities) and is now working to implement them.  These changes are likely to make an apprenticeship a post-college option for more students in independent specialist colleges.
