Plans are revealed to get more young people back to work in Cornwall.

The government is creating 19,000 apprenticeships equivalent to a degree.

Some are expected to be in the Duchy.

Business Secretary Vince Cable announced them at TNT in Bodmin:

"What we're doing here is setting aside a pot of money, about £25 million, to concentrate on advanced apprenticeships taking people through to degree level with engineering skills and I'm here in Cornwall because this is one of the 250 companies that is potentially going to tap into that scheme"

"One of the things I'm doing is visiting a variety of good local companies that are exporting. There's a robotics company for example, exporting 90% of its production. That's how we going to get the British economy going again - on a sustainable basis"

Dan Rogerson, MP for North Cornwall says:

"I am delighted that Vince Cable chose to come to North Cornwall to highlight the government's determination to give young people the very best in training and employment opportunities. TNT's commitment to North Cornwall and to its workforce is incredibly valuable, and it was very positive to see what is being achieved locally. It is great to see the Government recognising the need to value and invest in young people in Cornwall."
