This research investigates the impact of an expanding higher education sector on the quality of apprentices. Using two cohorts of the Longitudinal Surveys of Australian Youth, [the authors] find that during the period 1995 to 2006 there was a general expansion in both higher education and in apprenticeships. The findings show that, at this time, both university students and apprentices had lower maths and reading achievement while at school.
