IET: Cable welcomes big rise in apprenticeship numbers
Thursday, 27 October 2011
Modest increase in engineering and manufacturing apprenticeships cause for concern
Stephanie Fernandes from the Institution of Engineering and Technology (IET), said: “If the government is serious about rebalancing the economy towards manufacturing then focus needs to be provided to ensure apprenticeship funding is targeted on this sector. A 24 per cent increase in engineering and manufacturing apprenticeships against a backdrop of a 50 per cent increase across all sectors, should be cause for concern.”
