Michael Fabricant MP said the numbers were a boost to the area.

“Having been a chartered engineer and been conscious of a national skills shortage, this is good news for the apprentices who are likely to secure good full-time jobs and for our national economy,” he said. “Practical experience in work is an important commodity.”

The number of apprentices in various disciplines for the 2012/2013 period in the Lichfield constituency were:

  • Business Administration and Law – 290
  • Retail and Commercial Enterprise – 180
  • Health, Public Services, and Care – 160
  • Engineering & Manufacturing Technology – 110
  • Information & Communication Tech – 30
  • Construction, Planning and Built Environment – 20
  • Leisure, Travel and Tourism – 20
  • Education and Training -10
