Supporting social mobility through apprenticeships report

In this report we explore how apprenticeship training can be used as an essential tool to support social mobility. Social mobility has been a key part of the governments strategy for helping those struggling to get into the job market, with the introduction of the Apprenticeship Levy designed to encourage organisations to utilise education in improving their approach to social mobility.

The Apprenticeship Diversity Champions Network have stated in their recent report that "Companies with a more diverse workforce perform better financially. Every 1% increase in the diversity rate of a workforce, can lead to a 9% rise in sales revenue".

By driving an inclusive culture, organisations can increase the diversity of their workforce and can use apprenticeships as a tool to improve their approach to social mobility. They will not only gain financial benefit, but the benefits of having apprentices in the business, which are covered in more detail within this report.

In this report we cover:
  • The impact of Covid-19 on social mobility
  • How the government has been working over recent years to help promote social mobility in the workplace
  • How apprenticeships can support social diversity by driving an inclusive culture
  • The top benefits of using apprenticeships to support social mobility in your organisation
  • A real life example of where it has worked
