Apprentice and trainee numbers down

Posted on 6 July 2017
Apprentice and trainee numbers down
Latest quarterly figures show the number of people starting an apprenticeship or traineeship has continued to decline.

Trade commencements decreased by 9.1% (1400) to 14 300. Despite this decline, commencements in occupations such as plumbers, bricklayers, and carpenters and joiners remained steady.

Non-trade commencements also declined, down 4.6% (900) to 19 500, with the biggest declines seen in sales assistants and salespersons, factory process workers and other clerical and administrative workers.

There was also a decline in the number of apprentices and trainees in-training, with 265 000 in-training as at 31 December 2016, a decrease of 4.5% from 31 December 2015.
