University academic challenges the politically predominant notion around training apprentices

A new study led by Dr Daniel Bishop (pictured), from the School of Management, has systematically compared the effectiveness of apprenticeship training in companies of different sizes, in order to challenge the assumption that large companies offer the best training for apprentices.

The study, which is the first of its kind to look into how skills are formed by apprentices in companies of different sizes, focuses on those in mechanical engineering companies and how their experience of the apprenticeship differs depending on the size of their employer.
