“IT apprenticeships launched in Blackburn”

Why did New Labour not think of introducing an apprentice scheme nationwide when they were in power? As an example: Jack Straw’s Blackburn could have converted the old mill buildings that overlook the Leeds Liverpool Canal here in Blackburn. The Imperial Factory being a prime example which now sits unused and neglected. It would have made a perfect centre for hard working building trade apprentices. Thanks Jack for producing high intellect students with no jobs to go to instead of what we need now. Where have the time served builders, plumbers and electricians gone?

We really do need a Labour Party back again to replace the New Labour shambles that still pretends to be Labour. The present members all had Tony Blair’s hand up their backsides and it’s still hurting them. Not to have a believable opposition can only lead to misery!

New Labour - The embarrassing opposition party!

Actually, Blackburn College has been successfully delivering this type of IT training course for the past 5 years at least, which takes it into the realm of the previous government. I know because I set it all up.

It's all done electronically via e-portfolios and DropBox and mobile phones and tailored specifically to the employers' needs.

Yes, your no doubt correct with what you say with regard to IT training apprentices. My point being was that the skilled trades such as bricklayers, joiners etc. do not seem to have been considered worthwhile for many years.

Only recently has training within this particular area to be seen as worthwhile!

I didn't set out to turn this into a College marketing exercise but we have also been successfully delivering building trade apprenticeships for over 5 years as well. Brick laying, joinery, electrical, etc
Perhaps it would be worth looking at our website to see just what is/has been on offer for years.

www.blackburn.ac.uk and select 'Apprenticeships'
