star this property answer text <p>Apprenticeships are an excellent route into skilled employment for those of all ages. Women have accounted for the majority of apprenticeship starts - 53.5 per cent in 2016/17 (provisional 2016/17 full year data).</p><p> </p><p>It is important that both older and younger people are able to achieve the long term benefits associated with completing an apprenticeship, which include an increase in wages and progression in their careers.</p><p> </p><p>Women in particular can face challenges when returning to full-time employment, such as arranging necessary childcare or care for relatives. We have therefore amended our Funding Rules to allow more flexibility in working arrangements. This will make it easier for part-time workers to undertake apprenticeships, such as those with caring responsibilities and single parents.</p><p> </p><p>The employer-led Apprenticeships Diversity Champions Network is encouraging apprenticeships amongst those from a diverse range of backgrounds. This will include championing female apprenticeships particularly within sectors where women are currently underrepresented.</p>
