Electrician and plumbing courses 'could help the economic recovery'

In news that could affect those wanting to take plumbing or electrician training courses, plans that might see billions of pounds invested in apprenticeships and skills training have been announced by the government.

The Department for Business, Innovation and Skills this week outlined proposals to spend more than £3.5 billion on the provision of more advanced apprenticeships and adult training places, which it hopes will save the government money in the long-run.

Skills minister Kevin Brennan spoke of the need to encourage more workers and employers to train and contribute to "a more productive use of skills" in the country.

He added: "Skills training is an investment in an individual and their ability to get on in life, an investment in the productivity of our companies and in our future economic growth."

Those wanting to gain approved electrical or plumbing qualifications or take plastering, bricklaying or tiling courses could therefore be in high demand to train further and help the economy.

Business secretary Lord Mandelson recently announced further plans to offer £1,000 scholarships to 1,000 of the best apprentices in the country to progress into higher education.
