NSAFS 'welcomes opportunities to create more tradespersons'

A new government project outlined last week by secretary of state for business, innovation and skills Lord Mandelson, which could offer thousands more Brits a chance to take electrical courses, has won the approval of the National Skills Academy for Financial Services (NSAFS).

The Skills for Growth strategy was proposed by Lord Mandelson last Wednesday (November 11th) with the aim of sending more Britons to university and creating thousand of new places for people hoping to take vocational courses and apprenticeships.

Sylvia Perrins, chief executive officer of the NSAFS, has spoken of her delight that more people are being given the opportunity to advance in their careers, no matter what industry they want to work in.

"We welcome the focus on clear progression routes from vocational learning into work, higher level vocational learning and academic learning," she said.

It is hoped by Lord Mandelson that the Skills for Growth scheme could offer scholarships worth £1,000 each to the best 1,000 apprentices in the country.
