Apprenticeships are one of the popular topics in the Chancellor’s 2015 Summer Budget. 24n.biz asked small business owners for their reaction to the reforms. Here’s our Sales and Marketing Director James Poyser’s view in the press.
“As an employer and founder of a tech business that wants to grow, I really welcome the apprenticeship reform. It pains me to see ‘training’ firms punt young people and apprenticeships as cheap labour. We see them as a vital part of our lifeblood, the next generation that will move our businesses on. Investment in the scheme needs to be far if Britain is to genuinely bridge the tech skills gap and create loyal, high performing employees that can compete on a global scale and is especially important if we are to reach the ambition to create Britain’s own home-grown Google.”
