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, we 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.
