Labour is announcing plans to hold an Apprenticeship Summit to get businesses in Maylands to each commit to providing at least two new modern apprenticeships for Hemel school leavers by 2016.
Tony Breslin Labour’s Prospective Parliamentary Candidate, used a visit to Britvic’s Head Office in Breakspear Park today to announce plans for a summit between the Maylands Partnership, West Herts College and Dacorum Borough Council to guarantee a fixed amount of apprenticeships for Hemel school leavers year on year.
Tony Breslin, Labour’s Prospective Parliamentary Candidate, said:
“What we want to do is avoid the zero hours and part time culture that effects so many of us and reassure parents that school leavers can be part of the Maylands success story.”
“We want decent jobs with prospects and a clear career path and we want them hear in Hemel.”
“The deal will be that any companies who sign up to the scheme will receive support and advice from the council and the college to find the right funding and accredited qualifications provider to deliver genuine modern apprenticeships which can be advertised throughout the school system”.
