Nick Boles has announced that the term ‘apprenticeship’ will, by law, ensure that apprenticeships will be given the same legal treatment as degrees to improve skill recognition between employers and job seekers.

Apprenticeships with Deborah Services

Roger Hastie, Managing Director of Deborah Services discussed the announcement following the opening of Deborah’s new branch in Birmingham.

The new facility incorporates comprehensive training facilities to support apprentices and tradesmen’s ongoing professional development.

Attendees to the courses – which are available free of charge to customers – will receive a combination of theory learning and hands-on product interaction to help customers get to grips with using Deborah’s products safely and efficiently.

He commented: “We recognise that skills and training are not only the lifeblood of the industries and trades we serve but also of our own company. We have a responsibility to the building industry to put a marker in the ground and support apprenticeships across all the trades.

“The wheels are turning to not only get apprenticeships the respect they deserve but also extend the opportunity for others to enrol onto apprenticeship schemes. Thanks to the government boost in apprenticeships, we hope to see the continued rise of professionalism among tradesmen proved not only by experience but also by qualification.”
