Food retailers among those to offer 12,000 training places for unemployed young people
Minister for business and education calls for more employers to sign up to IGDs Feeding Britains Future scheme
Sainsbury's, Tesco, Asda, and Morrisons are some of the 100 food and grocery businesses promising 12,000 training places for young unemployed people this year.
The training places will be at more than 1,000 locations across Britain, Minister for business and education Matt Hancock announced yesterday in Westminster.
Young and unemployed people have the opportunity to gain work experience in the food sector for up to one month during September, as part of IGD’s Feeding Britain’s Future skills week.
Although companies taking part are not obliged to keep people on after September, more than half of the young people involved in the scheme last year started permanent employment in the food industry.
