Over the last financial year 1830 people locally started apprenticeships. This takes the total to 8580 since April 2010.
Unemployment in the Wokingham constituency is below 1%. It is good news that many more young people are gaining access to skills and job opportunities through the expanded apprenticeship schemes. The Conservatives wish to provide 3 m apprenticeships in the next Parliament if they win the election, compared to the 1.9 million apprenticeships started so far in this Parliament.
