Longer Apprenticeships Will Mean More Highly Skilled Workers, Says Perspective
Perspective

London, UK (RPRN) 05/22/12 — The recent announcement from the Government that the duration of apprenticeships will be lengthened has been praised by Perspective, a leading UK provider of education tracking software. The backing from Perspective has come following the pledge of support from Mark Farrar, chief executive of CITB-ConstructionSkills.

The skills minister John Hayes recently announced that more focus will be given to providing the right expertise to apprentices, giving them the  ability needed to thrive in their industry.

Paul Davis, managing director of Individual learning plan provider Perspective, commented: “Apprenticeships are a fantastic way for people to learn on-the-job whilst also earning money. The number of people taking up apprenticeships in the UK is increasing, with nearly half a million people starting a vocational training course in the academic year 2010-2011.”

Mark Farrar, chief executive of CITB-ConstructionSkills said: “The recent commitment from the Government will go some way toward ensuring the apprenticeship system works well for us all. We must always remember that it is the quality of our future workforce, not the quantity that will drive growth.”

Paul continues: “Industries such as construction and manufacturing are big employers of apprentices and skills are changing rapidly in these sectors as new technologies and legislations come into force. Therefore training for apprentices needs to adapt and grow, and the new focus on getting the right skills will do just that.”

Perspective is a leading provider of learning management software to the UK education market. For more information, please visit www.perspective-uk.com or call 0121 506 9540.
