Prime Minister Talks about Opportunity Guarantee for Apprenticeships or Work Placements for Young People

The Prime Minister delivered a speech launching a ‘new deal’ for the UK economy, and spoke to the national press about the government’s plans. As part of this speech on the economy he said the government will “offer an Opportunity Guarantee so that every young person has the chance of apprenticeship or an in-work placement so that they maintain the skills and confidence they need to find the job that is right for them“. The DfE have said that details are still being finalised. Comment on the news of the guarantee can be read here and on the economic recovery plan in general, here.
