NEW ONE YEAR PUBLIC SECTOR APPRENTICESHIP TARGET
1 April 2021 to 31 March 2022
Public sector bodies have a target to employ an average of at least 2.3% of their staff as new apprentice starters over the period.
The public sector apprenticeship target was introduced by the UK government in April 2017 in accordance with The Public Sector Apprenticeship Targets Regulations 2017. The target for new apprenticeships includes both newly employed apprentices and any existing staff that have begun an apprenticeship. All public sector bodies in scope must submit a report annually to the government on their progress in meeting the target.
