Using UK Department for Education data, the study from price comparison site Small Business Prices, found the overall number of apprenticeship starts between March and May 2020 dropped by 50 percent (39,761), compared to the same period last year.

 

Despite the health and social care sector having the most completed apprenticeships in 2019, and being a key worker industry, it is now one of the worst areas hit. With around 7,500 fewer starts in 2020 than 2019, apprenticeships are down 50 percent.

 

Other industries that have also seen a decline in apprenticeships include administration (61 percent), business management (39 percent), and child development (57 percent) have all felt the effects of the pandemic.
