The Returns to Apprenticeship Training
This paper uses recent data from the UK Labour Force Survey to estimate the wage gains thatindividuals make on average if they complete an apprenticeship programme. The resultssuggest gains of around 5-7% for men, but no benefit for women. Further analysis extendsthe results by considering the returns by age group, by qualification obtained, by highest priorqualification and by industrial sector. A key finding emerging from this further analysis is theimportance of acquiring qualifications with the apprenticeship, at level 3 or above.
