David visited University Campus Aylesbury Vale last week to talk about what the government is doing to encourage more businesses to take on apprentices.
The event which was organised by the Federation of Small Businesses (FSB), Buckinghamshire College Group, and Buckinghamshire Business First focused on providing local small businesses information on how to recruit, retain and make best use of apprentices.
“There is a need to upskill our workforce to ensure that our workforce is fit for the 21st Century”. –David Lidington MP
David spoke about the skills agenda, the government’s industrial strategy and the current apprenticeship opportunities for small and medium sized businesses. He encouraged audience members, which comprised of over 15 companies, to take on apprentices and thanked those who already have.
