According to Vince Cable, the country must create more apprenticeships so young people can learn the skills needed to be successful in business and revive the growth of key UK sectors.
Dr Cable made the announcement with skills minister John Hayes as they reiterated the government's commitment to increase the budget for apprenticeships to over £1.4 billion in 2011/12.
"Some of the most prestigious companies in England employ apprentices and benefit from doing so, and 80 per cent of those who employ apprentices agree that they make the workplace more productive. I'm calling on more businesses to follow this lead," he added.
It comes after a poll carried out by XpertHR as part of its annual HR roles and responsibilities survey showed that private sector employers are also aiming to improve the way in which they attract new talent, which could includes sales recruitment candidates.
