Apprenticeships Top of Education Priority List

by | 0 comments

A new poll suggests that increasing the number of apprenticeships is the joint most important education issue for voters in the lead-up to the election but there is limited backing for the apprenticeship policies put forward by both main parties. The poll, carried out by Public First, was taken from a nationally representative group of 2,011 adults. It found that boosting the number of all-age apprenticeships ranked top of the priority list when it comes to education, joint with hiring more teachers – both scoring a net positive score of 30 per cent. Simply increasing the number of apprenticeships was particularly popular among swing voters also, beating recruitment of teachers to first place with 39 per cent popularity. Click here for more.
