There is a push to create a thousand more apprenticeships in Cornwall.

It is after A Level results dropped for the second year in a row.

Acceptances into university are up but more students say they are looking to train on the job too.

Jason Sugden from the Cornwall Apprenticeships Campaign says there needs to be more choice closer to home: "We're keen to make the training available for young people in all ranges of frameworks, so it could be from hairdressing to engineering to plumbing to marketing or digital and social media, so there's a real broad range of choices for them to be able to stay in the county.

"The key benefit for employers is to bring new talent into the business and to have a positive effect on their bottom line so they can get an increased return on their investment. It all depends what sort of business they've got but there are a whole range of frameworks that can help in different ways."
 
Andrew from Truro is doing a marketing apprenticeship after deciding he wanted to stay at home: "Cornwall needs to keep the best talent here. I'm getting that essential work place experience to show the employer the evidence they need to employ me for the next couple of years maybe and move my career forward"
