Why do diverse & disadvantaged talent self-select out of apprenticeships?

We recently hosted our latest Time for Change webinar, which included a fascinating panel discussion with apprenticeship and recruitment specialists from the University of Oxford, House of Commons and MoD that saw us asking two big questions:

Why do diverse and disadvantaged talent select out of certain apprenticeship opportunities?

What can employers do about it?

These questions are so big, that they warrant a deeper dive into why the people who could gain the most from apprenticeships might opt-out of roles designed with them in mind.
