This report presents the findings of the Apprenticeship Evaluation Employer Survey 2012-13. The survey explored the views and experiences of 4,009 employers whose employees had finished an Apprenticeship programme between August 2011 and March 2012. The aim of the research is to monitor the extent to which Apprenticeships are meeting the needs of employers and to identify aspects of the programme that are under-performing to enable the Department for Business, Innovation and Skills (BIS), the National Apprenticeship Service (NAS) and the Department for Education (DfE) to devise strategies to ensure continual improvement and return on investment.

Most employers are satisfied with apprenticeships; they see a positive impact on their business from having apprentices. The report shows results from different apprenticeship frameworks and also by the size of the organisation involved.
