Steve Webb, the MP for Thornbury and Yate, will find out what it's like to be an apprentice today. He's swapping his role of Minister for Pensions to try his hand with a local financial company on their pensions help desk.

The aim is to highlight how apprenticeships are available across a range of business sectors, not just in traditional manufacturing work.
