Train4TradeSkills News: David Cameron’s Apprenticeships Mission

By taking on more apprentices, businesses across Britain could do more to support growth and help the economy said David Cameron yesterday at his second annual party conference as a Prime Minister.

Mr Cameron asked businesses to show good leadership and to adapt quickly to the challenges Britain is facing. He emphasised the importance of having skilful workers to compete with other countries and encouraged businesses to take on more apprentices.

The Prime Minister said: “When a balanced economy needs workers with skills, we need to end the old snobbery about vocational education and training. We’ve provided funding for 250,000 extra apprenticeships – but not enough big companies are delivering.

“So here’s a direct appeal: If you want skilled employees, we’ll provide the funding, we’ll cut the red tape. But you’ve got to show more leadership and give us the apprenticeships we need.”

Nick Hayward, CEO of leading vocational training provider Apprenticeship Training Limited (ATL), the practical training centre of Train4TradeSkills, welcomed the address of the Prime Minister and stated the company’s commitment to deliver a better future for its students.

Mr Hayward said: “The Prime Minister is quite right in his appeal to businesses in the UK to take on more apprentices because it is important for employers to have highly skilled and qualified workers.

“I am also pleased to hear from Mr Cameron that our commitments at ATL, of supporting people to get more qualifications and enter into employment, are in tune with policy-making of government”-said Mr Hayward.

The Prime Minister also emphasised the importance of having a job in the first place and outlined government’s determination to provide training and vocational courses to help people become more qualified.

Mr Cameron said: “We have to do everything we can to boost businesses to grow, to strive and to succeed”.

The Prime Minister outlined his ambition, as a part of The Big Society, to run more programmes for young people to help them make a positive contribution in the future and benefit society.
