Rachel was pleased to welcome local company thebigword to Parliament yesterday. Based in Leeds, thebigword is a local firm that provides translation and technology services across the world. The company brought some of its latest apprentices to meet MPs.
Nearly 20 MPs turned out from across the country to meet the latest in a line of over 100 apprentices to have been enrolled in their successful apprenticeship programme. Rachel was pleased to meet the new apprentices and discuss how to increase the number of apprenticeships over the coming years.
A Labour Government will increase the number of apprenticeships, asking all firms that bid for major government procurement contracts to provide new apprenticeship opportunities for the next generation.
