Skills minister Matthew Hancock announced the new budget today (November 20th) and said the fund was the second round of the Employer Ownership Pilot, which has already provided £70 million to help businesses extend skills to local suppliers and take on more female apprentices.
"We need as a nation to deliver the skills employers need. This is a unique opportunity for companies across all industries to secure their futures by addressing their skills needs now," stated the minister.
As well as specialised sales roles, more new media jobs could be created, as Mr Hancock also said that he was delighted to reveal the initial collaboration between Channel 4, the BBC and Creative Skillset to create internships and apprenticeships in production and technology had been successful.
