|I agree Maurice, but we are where we are, unlike when we left school there were plenty of jobs available.|
I therefore think the schemes that are being implemented, to give young people some experience of the working enviroment can only be good. I am aware that a few employers will take advantage, and use the system as cheap labour, but in the main most will act responsibly, and will in many cases take on the youngsters, who apply themselves well, during the training period.
I recall during the late 80’s a young man who I knew well, undertook a Youth training scheme at the age of17, through hard work and studying he became, at 37, one of the youngest CEO’s in his field, and to-day actively promotes, in conjunction with other companies, in a deprived area of London these apprentiship schemes, with some success.
