Call to promote apprenticeships more

A CALL has been made for the JobCentre to push apprenticeships in a bid to get young people off benefits and into the world of work.

Reports have revealed that one in five 16-to-24-year-olds are not in education, employment or training (NEET).

Noe Perspective, the Midlands-based pioneer of student-tracking systems, says youngsters do not have enough knowledge of the benefits of apprenticeships.
