Apprenticeships: evaluation of surveys of employers and individuals
This project, to undertake surveys of apprentices and employers of apprentices, provides an opportunity to fill a significant information gap about the benefits of Apprenticeships to individuals, employers and the State. The survey will build upon recommendations made to the Department for Business, Innovation and Skills with respect to the evaluation of Apprenticeships, and will consider issues of additionality, deadweight and equity during the three stages of the Apprenticeship – prior to the Apprenticeship, during the period of training and in the post-Apprenticeship period. The project is being led by IFF Research, with IER contributing to survey design and data analysis.
