Liberal Democrats have helped 1.8 million apprentices start training since 2010.

That's the biggest expansion in apprentices since the 1950s.

All young people should have the opportunity to get on in life, and apprenticeships are a great way to achieve that.

Cllr Darren Sanders, the Lib Dem parliamentary candidate for Portsmouth North, recently met with apprentices at Airbus Defence and Space in Anchorage Park.

“There have been 6610 new apprenticeships in Portsmouth since 2010 which is over three times as many as before.“ 
“It’s so important for us to provide more opportunities for our young people to get the training they need to enter into the jobs available including the high-tech industries here in Portsmouth.“
