The House of Commons Education Committee has produced a major report on the government's record on apprenticeships and traineeships for 16-19 year olds.

The report shows that not enough teenagers are taking up apprenticeships and that among 16 to 19 year olds the number of opportunities has decreased by 10,000.

Commenting on the report Shadow Minister for Universities, Science & Skills Liam Byrne MP said:

Dear friends,


I wanted to share with you the letter I have received from Nicky Morgan MP, Secretary of State for Education, earlier this week.

I am glad to read that we have progress at last and that the Government has now committed to seeing an openly elected parent council.

I was incredibly impressed to see the amazing progress of the Crossrail tunneling project under Tottenham Court Road when I was shown around by Crossrail Chairman Terry Morgan.

It was also great to hear about the Crossrail academy which is providing hundreds of apprenticeships and vital skills.
