The Alyn & Deeside MP visited the site at Broughton to see the work that apprentices carry out and their role in the international firm.

 Mark said,

‘Airbus is an excellent example of a big business firmly rooted in the local community and part of that is through its apprenticeship scheme. Tata Steel at Shotton Steel Works is also taking on a number of apprentices and this is really good for the local community.’

Airbus employs hundreds of apprentices from the local community and has links with Coleg Cambria and other colleges to ensure that their apprentices have the practical requirements required to receive their qualifications.

Mark added,

‘With over 900,000 young people unemployed apprenticeship schemes like the one in Airbus are vital for our local communities. They make great business sense and I would urge all companies to consider employing apprentices.’
