Apprenticeships are the most favoured way of winning the global skills race. It is a race that employers and Government want to win. How can they do so? David Way CBE has a wealth of experience of Apprenticeships. As a former CEO of the National Apprenticeship Service, he saw every aspect of Apprenticeship success and failure. Way uses his extensive network of Apprenticeship supporters and analysts to produce the widest range of insights into Apprenticeships ever assembled in the UK. What is the current state of Apprenticeships? What is working well? What more is needed to transform Apprenticeships into the chosen route for ambitious young people and their parents? How can we ensure Apprenticeships become the best means of attracting and managing new talent? Will the Government achieve its ambition for three million more Apprenticeships by 2020? How should success really be assessed? What more can employers, unions, trainers, schools, colleges, universities, careers advisers and others do? Influential business leaders offer their insights, including Sir Mike Rake, John Cridland, John Longworth, David Meller, Jason Holt and Steve Holliday; as well as TUC General Secretary, Frances O'Grady. Finally, Race to the Top concludes: how this can be a race well run.
