Kate Green – 2021 Comments on Apprentices

The comments made by Kate Green, the Shadow Education Secretary, on 3 August 2021.

Under the Tories the number of new apprenticeships is plummeting, with tens of thousands of people unable to access these opportunities.

Support for greater flexibility does little to end the stark decline in apprenticeship starts, particularly for those young people who could benefit most.

The Government must get a grip, stop tinkering at the edges and put forward a credible plan to put education and training at the heart of our economy recovery from the pandemic.
