A FULL review of apprenticeships and youth training in the Province is aimed at producing a ‘gold standard’ system delivering the best results for young people and business and industry Stephen Farry said yesterday.

Launching the review, Mr Farry, Minister for Employment and Learning said there was real work to be done and popular preconceptions to be addressed.

The primary aims of the review are to assist the growth and rebalancing of the economy by providing employers with an appropriately skilled workforce, and to ensure that young people are provided with opportunities to gain skills, experience and secure sustainable employment.
