Capital Apprenticeships is proud to have contributed towards the government’s Apprenticeship success story, after it announced this week that there have been two million Apprenticeships since 2010.
To mark the occasion, Business Secretary Vince Cable met the two millionth apprentice, Paige McConville. Paige is from Oxford and is completing an Advanced Apprenticeship in Engineering.
Cable said: “Reaching the two millionth Apprenticeship is testament to this government’s commitment to Apprenticeships. Paige and her employer are a shining example of how Apprenticeships give young people the chance to start a career and give businesses the talent to grow.
“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.”
Skills Minister, Nick Boles, added: “Two million is just the start – I want to see more employers making apprentices a key part of their strategies for growth.”
Capital Apprenticeships’ Commercial Manager, Mike Burridge, said: “We are delighted to have contributed towards this growth in Apprenticeships. They are vital to the economy of London and the whole of the UK. We look forward to recruiting many more apprentices and helping the government to grow this number even further.”
