IET: Cable welcomes big rise in apprenticeship numbers

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.”
