London is leading the way in taking on new apprentices

With recent Government figures showing that the number of apprenticeship starts in London increased by 30 per cent in 2008, the TUC has today (Tuesday) published a new guide for unions to encourage more employers to take on apprentices.
The TUC guide – Apprenticeships are Union Business – will be launched at an event hosted by unionlearn – the learning and skills arm of the TUC – and the Apprenticeship Ambassadors Network at TUC Headquarters in London later today.
