Give the Kids a Chance
Posted Thursday, 6 October 2011 at 10:23

David Cameron yesterday made a short reference to the fact that not enough employers are offering young people places on apprenticeship schemes.

We have young people in Bedfordshire who have been offered a place on an apprenticeship scheme via a college, however they cannot start the scheme or course until an employer has committed to take them on for two days per week at a cost of about £90.

This is because the young people involved need to be in employment in order to practice the skills they will learn at college.

One young man came to see me recently. His course starts in four weeks and we are now working to try and find a company to take him on and commit to the two days, but time is running out.

This situation will be the same around the country as young people face losing their college place if an employer won’t take them on.

So, to all employers, please give the kids a chance and commit.
