Apprenticeships: improving access for people with learning disabilities

In May 2016, the government asked Paul Maynard MP to chair a taskforce to explore how to help more people with learning disabilities access apprenticeships.

The taskforce met 3 times to:

  1. reach an understanding of the issues and barriers that affect people with learning disabilities in accessing and completing an apprenticeship
  2. identify solutions that could help overcome these barriers and raise participation levels
  3. make recommendations to both Ministers on which options to pursue

Th recommendations and the governments response to them have now been published
