The GGF is delighted to support the campaign and urges all companies in the industry to get behind it.”

The initiative will highlight the wide variety of different career paths available to young entrants, and an awareness of the qualifications they can achieve to give them learning, life-skills and ultimately career opportunities and financial rewards.
