Campaign to create 1,000 apprenticeships launches today
ONE THOUSAND apprenticeships for young people in Cornwall could be created by a new campaign which launched today.
It aims to provide employers, young people and their parents and carers with information and guidance about apprenticeships.
Activities will include employer road shows, skills fairs and hands on events.
“Apprenticeships are a real job with training and are a great way for young people to start their career” said Jason Sugden, from the Cornwall Apprenticeships campaign. “Providing apprenticeships for our young people will help us to bring more young people into work and develop their skills.”

Funding for the campaign is coming from the new Skills Support for the Workforce project, an ESF Convergence supported programme, and from the National Apprenticeship Service.
Cornwall Apprenticeships represents the Cornwall Training Provider Network, whose members aim to provide first class apprenticeship training.
The members are Cornwall College Business, DCET Training, DMT Business Services, Duchy College, Education and Training Skills, Focus Training (SW) Ltd, GHQ Training, GP Strategies and Truro & Penwith College Business.
A representative from the campaign said the latest research shows there are currently about 5,000 young people in more than 80 different types of apprenticeships across Cornwall.
These include accountancy, animal care, hospitality services, retail, vehicle maintenance and repair and veterinary nursing.
