Traineeships programme to help more young people get into work and apprenticeships
Skills Minister, Nick Boles will today announce plans by the government to open up the traineeships programme to help more young people to prepare for apprenticeships and working life.
He will also announce measures to improve how training providers are funded, to build on the traineeships programme’s successful start after 10,000 young people participated last year.
When he speaks at the Association of Colleges (AoC) annual conference, Nick Boles will say:
“More than 10,000 young people have already started a traineeship with firms like BT and Barclays – and they are proving a fantastic opportunity. But there is much more potential, so I want to see training providers and employers offer many more places.”
