Manchester Young Apprentice Competition

John Leech MP with joint winning teams Graham Cox, Matej Krchnavy, Ajay Mistry and Laura Wardlaw

On Friday I attended the closing ceremony of the Manchester Young Apprentice Competition 2010,  held at the University of Manchester.

This week long competition, sponsored by Rolls Royce, is aimed at testing and improving its participants entrepreneurial and creative skills over an intensive week long programme, featuring a mixture of both university and secondary school students.

It was great to meet some of the young people involved in this contest, and talk about the importance of engaging young people to develop practical work skills, and how Manchester can provide opportunities to do this.
