UK- Young apprenticeships prove succesful alternatives to traditional key stage 4 provision.

Students are highly motivated, achieve well and there is very little inadequate provision The Young Apprenticeships programme is providing a successful alternative to Key Stage 4 provision, with students in more than half of the schemes achieving well and developing good practical skills, according to Evaluation of the Young Apprenticeships programme published by the Ofice for Standards in Education (Ofsted) recently.

The programme, which was introduced in September 2004, allows students to spend two days per week working towards nationally recognised vocational qualifications, including 50 days' work experience, while continuing to follow the core National Curriculum. The programme covers a wide range of professions including engineering, business and administration, social care and sports management.

The most effective partnerships were able to call upon strong local knowledge and expertise to match pupils to placements that suited their chosen career path, and were well supported by local authorities and learning and skills councils.
