Apprenticeships and jobs

ApprenticeshipsResham has welcomed new figures showing 430 new apprenticeships were started by people in Dulwich & West Norwood last year. In total 2,050 new apprenticeships have been started in Dulwich & West Norwood since 2010. 

Across England more than 1.9 million apprenticeships have been started since 2010 – with the number of apprenticeships having more than doubled in this parliament.

As the Prime Minister announced on Monday a future Conservative government would go even further: making a £1 billion commitment to deliver 3 million apprenticeships by 2020 and end youth unemployment, funded by reducing the maximum amount that can be claimed on benefits from £26,000 to £23,000, and limiting young people’s access to housing benefit.
