The government today announced a £4.5million increase in funding for apprenticeships and trainees in the engineering construction sector. This new funding aims to increase the opportunities for young people to train for skills jobs to 1,200, more than double the current number, by 2011.
Lord Mandelson stated:
“The engineering construction sector employs up to sixty thousand people in the UK. This new investment means that more home grown workers will be provided with the skills and experience needed for them to take the work opportunities that designing, building and maintaining the wave of new investment the country needs in power stations and energy infrastructure”.
