Hertfordshire Parent and Carer Survey of Apprenticeship Awareness 2021

The past year has presented many challenges, not least to our young people who have faced significant disruption in their education.

Please complete this survey so that we can better understand the views and support needs of parents and carers regarding apprenticeships.

All responses will be kept confidential and will only be used to plan apprenticeship support services in Hertfordshire. This survey is being conducted by Amazing Apprenticeships on behalf of Hertfordshire LEP and Hertfordshire Careers Hub. We will not share your details or individual responses with any other parties.
