Derek Thomas said ‘I know from firsthand experience how valuable an apprenticeship can be. However, employers are busy people and do not necessarily have time to research the implications and opportunities of providing an apprenticeship. I wanted to make this task easier and have invited Stephen Roberts of Cornwall Apprenticeship Agency to meet with employers and give them all the information and advice available.’
