All young people should have the opportunity to get on in life, and Vince Cable, the Lib Dem business minister, has made it easier for businesses to take on apprentices.
He has given 40,000 businesses grants of up to £1,500 for each young unemployed person they take on as an apprentice and put £550m into improving college facilities for apprentices.
Apprenticeships are a great way to achieve that. Liberal Democrats have helped 1.6 million apprentices start training since 2010. That's the biggest expansion in apprentices since the 1950s.
