“We know that there is currently an underrepresentation of BAME apprentices across all levels and sectors in our economy. We also know
that the careers and skills landscapes were changing before COVID-19 – and, as with so many things, the pandemic has accelerated this. The
make-up of the workforce and careers is going to continue to change and evolve in the coming months and years with greater automation, a
shift to digital enabled roles and transformation happening across many business sectors. Apprenticeships will continue to play a vital role
as we recover from the disruption of COVID and we need to ensure that BAME talent are able to access opportunities as we move forward.” – Cindy Rampersaud Senior Vice President of Pearson PLC, BTEC & Apprenticeships
