PM orders 200,000 public sector apprenticeships

David Cameron is set to unveil plans to create 3m new apprentices in Britain by 2020, including £85m in grants for small businesses, alongside new rules requiring public sector employers to set up 200,000 apprenticeships. The extra £85m will be spent on the existing apprenticeship grants for employers. Cameron will say the public sector must do more to create apprenticeships. A new Institute for Apprenticeships will also be set up to regulate the quality of the positions offered to trainees.
