Robert Halfon Interview for #SkillsWorld Live
It's clear, and anybody who has lived through any economic disruption will know, young people are particularly at risk, and it is vital that we give them full support.I think what the prime minister knows, as we all know here in the Department for Education, is apprenticeships are a great route into the workplace. Of course, they have the advantage of you're working straight away as well, you're being productive, you're adding something to the economy, as well as gaining vital skills.We're looking to ensure that as many people as possible can benefit from this route, and obviously working out ways that we can support employers to encourage more apprenticeships, etc. We're still working through a whole series of options and proposals, but it's vital that we support young people during this time.Both the prime minister and myself, particularly as I used the apprenticeship route myself, think it's an absolutely brilliant way into your career.

Was there an indication that Tony Blair didn't say that 50% into HE was a target? Not my recollection.
