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:
- reach an understanding of the issues and barriers that affect people with learning disabilities in accessing and completing an apprenticeship
- identify solutions that could help overcome these barriers and raise participation levels
- make recommendations to both Ministers on which options to pursue
Th recommendations and the governments response to them have now been published
