Last night the government’s Secretary of State for Culture Media & Sport, Rt Hon Andy Burnham was in Liverpool to launch Creative Apprenticeships. A new opportunity for young people to work and train in the creative industries.

Sir Alan Sugar, the very doyen of business himself says: “It’s important that employers take apprenticeships seriously. Apprentices can help a business to grow and thrive.”

High street giants like Sainsbury’s, Tesco, Superdrug and Phones 4u are increasing the number of Apprenticeships they offer, thereby ensuring they have the right skills to stay ahead of the competition.
Sainsbury’s is so pleased with its 20 pilot Apprenticeships in craft bakery, butchery and fishmongery that it has quadrupled its apprentices to 465. Tesco will take on a further 800 apprentices this year, Superdrug plans a further 1,000 and Phones 4u intends to train at least 1,000 by next April.

Apprenticeships are crucial for providing employers with the skills they need to succeed from accountancy to engineering to construction to creative industries and sport.

Here at the Chamber we have trained many apprentices and a considerable number have gone on to join our staff.
