A £2m scheme to help people aged between 18 and 24 will be launched at the 20/20 Vision business exhibition in Kent later today. The fund means up to ten percent of the county's unemployed youths could find work.
The money should enable businesses and social enterprises in Kent to take on an apprentice for as little as £60 per week, with administration taken care of too. The scheme will be unveiled by County Council leader Paul Carter.
