Labour’s cheek at criticising apprenticeships

Posted by Steve Gee on Friday 6 February 2015

Labour’s stance on apprenticeships once again prove they cannot be trusted to build a stronger economy.

Today (Friday 6 February) they criticised the coalition’s record on creating apprenticeships, even though there are now more apprentices than ever before.

In fact there are more than 85 per cent more apprentices in schemes in England than there were under Labour.

What’s more is that last March Labour called Intermediate (level 2) Apprenticeships “deadweight” and proposed scrapping the scheme.

In government Liberal Democrats have created 2m apprenticeships, enabling young people boost their skills and gain valuable work experience.

Jordan is one of the many apprentices to have benefited from the scheme.

Liberal Democrats care about giving people alternative routes to skills and education and this means ending the false apartheid between higher education and vocational education.

Vince Cable has fought hard to prevent decimating cuts from the further education budget which the Conservatives would have been happy to slash.

Only the Liberal Democrats are working towards a stronger economy and a fairer society.
