Commenting, Jack Lopresti MP said:
I can’t think of a more fitting way to highlight National Apprenticeships Week than to start the search for my next apprentice.
I am passionate about social mobility and aspiration. Apprenticeships enable you to earn while you learn, gain valuable skills and experience and are a fantastic way of enabling people to fulfil their potential.
I’m really looking forward to seeing who applies to join my team.
