David Cameron encourages apprentices

David Cameron has been encouraging apprentices on a visit to Carillion in Wolverhampton.

Carillion says it is the largest single employer of construction apprentices in the UK, training around 10 per cent of the construction sector’s apprentices through a national network of 13 construction training centres located across the country. The Prime Minister hosted a question and answer session with around 180 members of staff.

Says Carillion Chief Executive, Richard Howson, ‘We were delighted to welcome the Prime Minister to Carillion. We know that a strong apprenticeship system is key to encouraging economic growth by providing ourselves, our supply chain and the construction sector as a whole, with highly-trained individuals with up to date skills as well as providing an important career path for young people.’
