Education Secretary Gavin Williamson has visited apprentices at construction company Mace.
Williamson’s visit marked the start of National Apprenticeship Week, which aims to promote apprenticeships and encourage young people to consider them as a viable alternative to a university degree.
“This week is a time to celebrate all that is exceptional about apprenticeships,” said Williamson, “and encourage employers, individuals, parents and teachers to find out more and embrace the opportunities that they offer.”
The Electrotechnical Skills Partnership (TESP) runs an Electrical Careers website to promote apprenticeships and career paths within the electrotechnical industry.
