UK Trade &amp; Investment (UKTI) has lead UK responsibility for the provision of support and assistance to new and existing exporters of goods and services both at home and overseas. The Welsh Government is responsible for devising and implementing additional programmes to meet the particular needs of companies in Wales.</p><p> </p><p>UKTI works closely with the Welsh Government's trade and Investment team who deliver services on the ground in Wales. Companies in Wales therefore have access to the support provided both by Welsh Government and UKTI.</p><p> </p><p>UKTI uses its Performance and Impact Monitoring Surveys (PIMS) to measure the performance and impact of its support across the UK. The PIMS evidence is periodically complemented by independent impact evaluations. For the most recent example please see:</p><p> </p><p><a href="https://www.gov.uk/government/collections/uk-trade-investment-performance-and-impact-monitoring-survey" target="_blank">https://www.gov.uk/government/collections/uk-trade-investment-performance-and-impact-monitoring-survey</a></p><p> </p><p>Whilst it is for the Welsh Government to ensure that the support they provide is monitored effectively, UKTI meets with them regularly to discuss progress and issues arising, at chief executive level, at director level and through ongoing discussions at operational level, both through UKTI headquarters and the Investment Services Team that carries out inward investment on its behalf. Following a request for support in developing their capability, UKTI provided a secondment to the Welsh Government to support their work.</p><p> </p><p> </p><p> </p><p> </p><p> </p><p> </p><p> </p>

star this property answer text <p> </p><p>We do not believe there is a need for such a body. Under the Apprenticeships, Skills, Children and Learning Act 2009 (ASCL), apprentices are employed under an Apprenticeship Agreement, this ensures they are protected under the Employment Rights Act 1996. Apprentices' pay is covered under the National Minimum Wage regulations and HMRC is responsible for ensuring compliance with these regulations. HMRC provides comprehensive advice and guidance for employees through the Pay and Work Rights Helpline. This is available via the GOV.UK website at <a href="https://www.gov.uk/pay-and-work-rights-helpline" target="_blank">https://www.gov.uk/pay-and-work-rights-helpline</a> .</p><p> </p><p> </p><p> </p> more like this
