Apprenticeships to be legally protected

18th June 2015

The government have announced plans to legally protect apprenticeships, it was revealed over the weekend.  This means that the term ‘apprenticeship’ can no longer be abused or undervalued and will be given equal legal treatment as degrees.  Companies providing apprenticeships will be required to ensure that such apprenticeships meet certain requirements and standards to try to boost the value of apprenticeships.  The new legislation, which is part of the Enterprise Bill, also means that the government can take action against companies or organisations whose apprenticeship schemes do not meet certain standards.

The government has promised to create three million apprenticeships by 2020 and will require public sector bodies to meet targets for taking on new apprentices.

Our mission

At Bridge Builders Mentoring, we believe that the gap between young men from poor socio-economic backgrounds and their full potential is never too large to overcome. Bridge Builders Mentoring Scheme provides young men the opportunity to gain additional support and guidance from adult mentors from professional backgrounds, who are experienced in life and work. Together, they can define, explore and overcome the problems that are so often associated with a low economic background.

The Bridge Builders Mentoring Scheme is a charity providing low cost services for young men. Any donations are greatly needed and appreciated. We rely on the support of our corporate sponsors and generous individuals to keep our work running and enable us to change the lives of young men throughout the UK.
