It is therefore unable to supply information on the sectoral distribution of spending on apprenticeships in the format requested.

The strategy commits to partnering with schools, multi academy trusts, and local authorities in challenging areas to develop local initiatives that support recruitment and retention of teachers. The department is exploring how this could be developed to benefit different communities, including those in rural areas. As we design key reforms, such as the early career framework, we will ensure they meet the needs of all schools, including rural schools.</p> more like this
