Skills White Paper puts apprenticeships at the heart of education

Commenting on the Skills White Paper, published today (Wednesday), TUC General Secretary Brendan Barber said:

“By providing extra funding for advanced apprenticeships and helping trainees to go on to university, the Government is putting apprenticeships at the heart of our education system. Modern apprenticeships have come a long way since going into long-term decline in the 1980s and 1990s.
