Assembly Written Question 17777/17-22
To ask the Minister for the Economy for a timeline for expanding apprenticeships to all ages, as outlined in the Economic Recovery Action Plan.
Answer: I am committed to making apprenticeship opportunities at levels 2 and 3 available to more people and sectors by amending the current age-related criteria.
My Department continues to develop this proposal, including engaging with stakeholders across a range of sectors on implementation. I intend to bring forward proposals to make sure this commitment is delivered this year as age should not be a barrier to lifelong learning.
