Baker Clause provision still inconsistent in schools, UCAS warns

The Baker Clause – which should guarantee secondary school students access to a range of education and training provider information – is still not being implemented consistently, UCAS has warned.

Research from the university admissions service has found that only 26 per cent of students agree that it is “easy” to access information about Apprenticeships – compared to 73 per cent when to comes to higher education.

This is despite more than half of students looking to apply to higher education in 2022 being interested in Apprenticeship routes.

UCAS has published the research findings in a bid to raise awareness about the need to do more to give young people the information they need.

Its research involved responses from 1,165 young people in England and has been published in the report Where Next? Improving the journey to becoming an apprentice.
