DfE ‘watching it closely’ as management becomes England’s second most popular apprenticeship subject


Management has soared in popularity to become the second most common apprenticeship framework, FE Week analysis can reveal.

According to statistics released by the DfE, the management framework had 46,640 new starters in 2016/17, a figure which grows to 64,480 when counting standards.

The data shows management has narrowly overtaken the business administration framework in popularity, while health and social care still reigns supreme with more than 85,000 new starters last year
