Prospective Parliamentary Candidate for Meriden, Ade Adeyemo, has welcomed the news that the Liberal Democrats have fulfilled our commitment to starting two million apprenticeships in this Parliament.
All young people should have the opportunity to get on in life, and apprenticeships are a great way to achieve that. That's why the Liberal Democrats have prioritised creating jobs and apprenticeships in this Government.Commenting on the good news, Ade Adeyemo said:
“Businesses need well trained young people to grow and prosper, and University doesn’t suit every school-leaver. We’ve known for a long time that the decline in Apprenticeships over recent decades has held back the growth of our economy.”
“We won’t stop now. In the next Parliament we will work even harder to get young people into fulfilling careers.”
Liberal Democrat Business Secretary Vince Cable added:
"Reaching the 2 millionth apprenticeship is testament to this Government’s commitment to apprenticeships.”
"This isn’t just about numbers. From space engineering, to TV production, to legal services, apprenticeships are the ticket to a great job and a route employers trust to access the skills they need."
