Greater Manchester Combined Authority (GMCA) has launched a survey to capture over 50s’ views on apprenticeships.
The survey will help GMCA to better understand the challenges and perceptions of apprenticeships among older people.
Amy Glanville, Apprenticeships Programme Manager at GMCA, said: “We want to make sure that everyone can access apprenticeships and get on in a fulfilling career, and that includes older people.
“Many older people aren’t aware that apprenticeships are open to them, and those that do take up an apprenticeship opportunity may face different challenges to their younger peers.
“We want to understand the perceptions and experiences of apprenticeships among older people in Greater Manchester, use that insight to guide our future work and make apprenticeships more accessible to older people in Greater Manchester. “

The survey is anonymous, with the option to give contact information if you would like to participate in further research. This survey should take no more than 10 minutes to complete and will be open for the next month.
