School leavers from disadvantaged backgrounds risk missing out on ‘free’ degree apprenticeships.
CMI surveyed 1,004 parents of 11-18-year olds in July 2017:
- Just 20 per cent of parents have heard of degree apprenticeships
- Affluent parents are 2.5 times more likely than the less well-off to know about this new route to university
- Low awareness of ‘earn as you learn’ degree apprenticeships could leave behind less privileged school leavers
