FILEY MP Anne McIntosh has welcomed a new Government scheme to boost apprenticeship in the area.

Miss McIntosh said National Apprentice Week, which ran until yesterday, provided a huge catalyst for the production industry.

She said: “Placing more young people into apprenticeships is a priority and this is why the Department for Business, Innovation and Skills has pledged to work to create an additional 75,000 adult places.

“I am pleased to say that in the last academic year there were 700 apprenticeships delivered in the Filey area and I hope we can build on last year’s encouraging figures.”
