Deputy Minister for Skills and Technology, Julie James, says the EU has approved funding of £28 million towards the investment.

She says it will provide support for 24,762 young people over the next four years.

Our Traineeship Programme helps young people who want to work but need that extra helping hand. 68% of learners who left the Traineeships programmes in 2013-14 had a positive progression into employment or learning at a higher level
