Public Audit and Post-legislative Scrutiny Committee 04 October 2018 : 04 October 2018


The Convener

I thank our witnesses very much for their evidence. 11:07 Meeting continued in private until 11:25.  



Public Audit and Post-legislative Scrutiny Committee 04 October 2018 : 04 October 2018


The Convener

It worries me greatly, because of the situation with youth unemployment and opportunities for young people, that the figures can be so stark and so low. If you can commit to looking at that ...



Public Audit and Post-legislative Scrutiny Committee 04 October 2018 : 04 October 2018


The Convener

That is fair enough, but if you aim to reach the 5,000 target by next year, the figure of approximately 13 out of a target of 250 in one area must surprise you.



Public Audit and Post-legislative Scrutiny Committee 04 October 2018 : 04 October 2018


The Convener

Does that example represent the situation with foundation apprenticeships across the country?



Public Audit and Post-legislative Scrutiny Committee 04 October 2018 : 04 October 2018


The Convener

Mr Johnston, would it surprise you to hear that the target for Dundee was to have approximately 250 FAs, but we have only 13 foundation apprentices at the moment?



Public Audit and Post-legislative Scrutiny Committee 04 October 2018 : 04 October 2018


The Convener

Yes. Please remind me who, exactly, is responsible for delivering foundation apprenticeships.



Public Audit and Post-legislative Scrutiny Committee 04 October 2018 : 04 October 2018


The Convener

Do you know how far towards the target we are, Ms McKechnie?



Public Audit and Post-legislative Scrutiny Committee 04 October 2018 : 04 October 2018


The Convener

By when?



Public Audit and Post-legislative Scrutiny Committee 04 October 2018 : 04 October 2018


The Convener

Has the national target for 5,000 foundation apprenticeships been met?



Public Audit and Post-legislative Scrutiny Committee 04 October 2018 : 04 October 2018


The Convener

Foundation apprenticeships are an integral part of the subject of the discussion that we are having, are they not?
