Download the Strategic Transport Apprenticeship Taskforce’s (STAT) 3 year progress report marks the latest in a series of annual reports setting out progress against ambitions from the government’s 2016 Transport infrastructure skills strategy, as well as information on the diversity of those undertaking apprenticeships.
Key highlights include:
- BAME representation now stands at over a fifth of apprentice intake, representing a 56% proportional increase over the last 2 years in the share of BAME apprentices in the sector. The figure provides a positive result for STAT, who have exceeded their commitment to improve BAME representation in apprenticeships.
- Women’s representation also shows positive improvement, with women now making up 15.4% of technical and engineering apprenticeship starts, up from 10% 2 years ago, representing a 54% proportional increase. The figures again show real progress towards the STAT’s target of 20%. Female representation in all apprentice roles has increased to 23.6%, up from 20% 2 years ago.
