New apprenticeships

Peter Aldous Waveney MP has welcomed new figures showing that 830 new apprenticeships were started by people in Waveney last year. In total 3,650 new apprenticeships have been started in Waveney since 2010.
Across England more than 1.9 million apprenticeships have been started since 2010 – with the number of apprenticeships having more than doubled in this parliament. 
As the Prime Minister announced last week a future Conservative government would go even further: making a £1 billion commitment to deliver 3 million apprenticeships by 2020 and end youth unemployment, funded by reducing the maximum amount that can be claimed on benefits from £26,000 to £23,000, and limiting young people’s access to housing benefit. 
Peter said:-
“These figures are fantastic news; 3,650 new apprenticeships since 2010 means more young people in the Waveney area are getting the skills set they’ll need to get a good job and secure a bright future.
“And I’m pleased that this government has committed £1 billion to deliver 3 million apprenticeships by 2020 and end youth unemployment.”
